Thanks for the pics. I also knew the whole family.....later of course. There was one of their shops opposite our house in Beechmount St. They also opened one on Beechmount Ave. I think Joe went to South Africa.

Hi Deidre, NOW I got it!! we're talking a different generation. Where would a Maura Brennan fit in with your family tree. I believe she lived/lives in Florida.Hard to keep all the Brennans straight. ;)
