What a great photo. Oh those gingham skirts and dresses. Anyone recall the McGloins in Madrid Street just below Dr Boyds which later became wee Dr McKees?There was Kay and Terry and May, Peter and wee Michael.
Doctor McKee delivered me at home.He was the family doctor.

"Wee Michael"? I went to school with him and that wasn't yesterday.He was a nice lad.

Taken about 1955 in Woodstock Street.  
The lad is Jimmy Creaney and one of the girls is a wee O'Donnell  (I think)

 

 
We were all happy street urchins then.  .Tink
There were 2 O'Donnell families(lived around the corner from each other).The girl on the right was from the Woodstock St. ones.For the life of me I can't remember her name.Geraldine??

Dr. Mckee,s surgery always packed. I remember some of them even were having their tea in it. :D

"Wee Michael"? I went to school with him and that wasn't yesterday.He was a nice lad. Gerard I remember his granda taught him a poem which started. "Dublin on the Liffey, Cork on the Lea" and he was able to recite the whole poem when he was about 4 years old. Anyone know this poem????

Religion is man made excuses for their way to God , The bible is the inspired word of God  ,read it and  then be directed as to how it  teaches . There is no one religion mentioned in the bible . I'm thankful for at least one thing each day I wake up ,breath, means He's given me another day to live . We don't answer for religions we all have a choice  believe in God or don't.
hello cousin, man invented religon,god is and man invented god
