Hello everyone, I just came across this forum (Short Strand) and I am presently reading through all the posts, time consuming but very interesting.
Does anyone remember a guy called Danny Lawlor (I hope I spelt his surname correctly) from the Strand? Or where he is or what happened to him since the late 70's. He would be around the 50 year old mark.
Buffaloburger; I can't view the photo's youposted, (maybe you removed them?) are you able to send them to me or post them back up the forum again?

hi,im from the market but go in to the strand daily, and  i no danny ,as far as i no he is still  in the strand living and doing well,i have seen him ragulary ;)
you can take the man out off the market,but not the market out off the man.!

You are right the photo was taken from Seaforde ST on the the left would have been Mary Harpers shop on the left corner. My guess going by the cars age at the time it must have been around 1983

Hey Rep member I said it brought back memories, the woman walking across the road could even be my auntie Sarahann or her daughter peggy.  Maybe I am wrong or just an oul dreamer these days but the friendship there was in them wee streets seems to be a thing of the past the world over these days

Yes frank he is Hugos brother I havent met Hugo but he has been playing that CD you have on his Radio program in Toronto.
His Brother Sean is a brilliant singer and entertainer if you come across him tell him I was asking for him.
