Re the photo of Sadie Lee's shop , does anyone remember she used to ride a motorbike ?
   
I lived on the Antrim Road, just where the traffic lights are now for Tesco, and left in 1969.
I moved to England, but now returned and living in Islandmagee.
I attended Glengormley Primary School and Dunlambert.
I am looking to make contact with people I might know, Cardwell, Horner, Kitchen, Cheadle, Calderwood.
Had some great times.
You must have lived very close to The McAlindens at 441 Antrim Road.   McCracken lived at 443 and Noel Crymble at 445

Lovely to read about memories when I was a child. I lived in Queen's Park and remember well going to ted gallaghers and the red hand was the pub my dad went to. I also went to both primary schools.

in a moment of clarity i remembered, i seen a girl  who was very pretty, this was about 45 years ago, i talked to her about 3 times just in passing, and my mind is bringing up the name Margaret Robinson, what a strange thing the mind is to bring this memory up, she must have made a great impression on my mind ,to come up after so long, did she exist , or have i really lost the plot.

Your memory is fine McRoyal, I remember a Margaret Robinson who hung out in Glengormley around 1972/73 with another pretty girl called Sheena McCrea. Regards OW
