They did move from 61 Anderson Street in the 70's....there's Sean, Eddie, Gerrard, Liam, Kevin, Brian, Jim, Maureen....and Paddy,  my husband  lives in Canada now.  Never had the pleasure of meeting Barney....but from the stories I've been told he was quite a character.

Barney was a "Rough Diamond" to say the least and Sadie had a Heart of Gold.
Luckily,most of the family got their looks from her-Barney wasn't much of a "looker".LOL.

When you're talking to Sadie again you can tell her that all the Novenas that she said for me(Sena-my mother-twisted her arm) finally paid off.I am very,very happy.
Please pass my regards on to her and Sean.
She must be coming up eighty.good for her.
How's Sean? Married? A hundred kids?? LOL.

Oh and BTW Barney would have laughed at what I said.     .He'd have given me a good cuff round the lug first.
