What was Junior Kelly's first name, if it was Sammy there is picture posted by Erincyprus on this thread.(#806)
Sammy Kelly died about fifteen years ago. his son pat still lives in the area.

Wrong Kelly REP1 - Junior was a bricklayer he would be about 53/54 years old. He lived a the top end facing the Doyle or down a few doors. I think his brother lived at the other end facing Mary Harpers shop

Bronco is living down in Bray now.  I was talking to his older brother yesterday.  He is out of the Strand a long time now

No he wasn't put out, he re-married  and lives in Bray with his wife and kids. He has nothing to do with his ex in the strand and only bothers with his daughter there. Met him last year, he is doing well for himself and has a lovely family. Remember that one he was married to in the strand tortured him.

100% he wasn't put out. Bit of an eegit when he used to get drunk but he never did anything dodgey or dirty. His wife was a friend of my missus, they went to St Dominics together. He lived about the university area for a couple years with her, sure everybody knew that, his ex used to bitch about it to everybody.  Then they moved south about a year or two after me. Met him last year, he hasn't changed a bit where as I am now bald.lol.

I would like to thank everyone who helped me locate Stephen'Bronco'Downey. To The King a very big thankyou, after speaking to Bronco I feel relieved for our family problem. While I do not wish to discuss my family's problem I feel it is suffice to say his name was used as a threat by some-one in his former family and that the man himself knew absolutely nothing of the 'problem' or the threat, it was made up to protect a grave deception done to him and my late brother many many years ago.
