« on: June 14, 2008, 07:49:22 PM »
Anyone here from Lavinia Street? My Granny lived there for years then moved on to River Terrace. I was born in Belfast but move to the USA in 1966.

Then you must also know Eleanor Maguire and Pauline. Do you know of anyway I can get in touch with any of them. We lost touch about 20 yrs ago. I had the biggest crush on Terry McCartan (the son) but my granny use to tell me to stay away from him because he was bad. (lol) My Uncle Felix still lives on River Terr. I will have to call my uncle gusty and tell him I was talking to you. Did you get to see him when he was home?
