Yes she was/is SF, do you remember the little cut she had between her nostrils. She was also a good singer. Did you know her before she married some-one called Pinkerton? You must remember Sandy, her brother, he sang with a band in the local pubs. I remember having to pay a cover charge once to get in to see him.

Hi Jaunty....

I live about 55min west of Toronto, I talk to her daughter Kim quite a bit and usually see them when I'm home to Belfast....will definitely tell Caroline I was speaking to you...it's funny, I only found them in 2004, Caroline's Mum was the only one of my Granda's immediate (Close)  family who stayed in Belfast when the others immigrated in the 1920's.....until I started to search the family tree, I no clue they existed....was wonderful to finally find them.

All the Best

I lived in East Bread St. I know nearly everyone who lived on that Street, I lived opposite the Mchanes , my name was Irvine, I would like to hear from anyone out there who remembers the Irvines, my Dad had a photographic shop on the Beersbridge Rd just opposite Grove Baptist Church.

Mcd,
Hi now if I don't have my Mitchell's mixed up I am quite sure your Patricia Mitchell is my Auntie's sister.  Margaret (Maggie) is married to my Uncle Jimmy McShane.  He was really good friends with the late Jackie Hagen.  Jackie passed away the same summer my Granda Joe McShane died.  I was home for that sad occasion and I think both funerals were a week apart. I need to get my Mum online more often because she probably knows most of from the street.  She remembers just about everyone.

Hello everyone.  I just want to add one or two things since I have had a chat with my Mum.
   
Now Specy my Mum remembers the Irvines living opposite her Granny's house at 25 East Bread Street.  Not too far from the crowd at 51 though.

Mcd my Granda didn't keep racing pidgeons.  He had no room for he was busy keeping 11 children!  He did however have a habit of going to the corner and feeding all the pidgeons that would flock around him.  As a small girl I thought it was magic to watch him surrounded by all the birds.  Mum certainly remembers Ella's wee shop and of course the Jacksons were close neighbours.  I remember Mr. Parker's shop and Sammie Vance's as well.  You must be Jean who visited us with Pat Mitchell in Ontario.  Do you remember any of the younger Mc Shane boys?  It truly is a small world isn't it!

Hello Jean,
Yes two of my many Uncles are Bertie and Desi.  And of course you would know my Uncle Jimmy the best of all.  My late Uncle Kenny used to hang around with him alot years ago.  Have you heard how my Auntie Maggie is doing lately?  My Mum gives them a call from time to time.
As for snowwhite being one of the boys' nickname that one is new to me.  But I certainly don't know everything now do I.

Achem!! erm? can I stick my head round the door a sec?

1982 - 83 ? - Anyone know a guy who lived at the end of the street on the left who worked in Shorts?

Jim something? - total Gentleman - Any free time he ever got was spent in Crawfordsburn country park.

We built him a two story timber framed extension at the back of his house - the first of its kind in Northern Ireland - Job only lasted a lot a few weeks but really enjoyed it.  sob! Sob! at break/Tea time - you got the works. sob! sob!

If Jim's still with us he is no doubt retired and lying in the sun in Crawfordsburn right now

Gentleman Jim :-)
