My mistake McGovern don't know where I got McKeown from.

Hi I lived on hillview street in the 60s and 70s,
It was called the Bush but changed its name to the burning bush ,that was a bad move as it was petrol bombed at the height of the troubles .I was there the night it was burned down

Hi all, I hope I am not mixing my words up here, my mum and grandparents lived on the Oldpark Road back in the day, am I right in saying it doesn't exist anymore? 
I am going through some history and family records and may be mixing the streets up, I may also have old photos of the Oldpark lying about if anyone is interested in seeing.
