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?
your granny was right about terry jnr lol, i cant think who elenor or pauline maguire is
              my mum lives about 4doors away from felix. are you the eldest of kathleen's kids ?
              im a few years younger than Gusty's eldest son. hope to hear from you soon kate.

Yes I am the eldest. I just turned 46. When did you move from Lavinia St? Eleanor lived at the bottom of the street on the same side as the McCartan's and she had a brother Desi. Pauline I don't know her last name but I remember she had alot of dogs. Funny the things we remember.

Stow You said your mum lives 4 doors away from Uncle felix. Has she seen him lately? He was taken my granny's passing very bad. We were very worried about him. I also remember that corner shop and wasn't there a pub on the top corner near my granny's. We use to go over to the fruit stand on the corner of the ormeau rd. I think it was run by Kathleen McManus.

hi karen and co. i remember the pub at the corner of river terrace and lavina street as "paddy mc graths"  maybe he was the man who just worked in it?

i also remember the wee shop at corner of abbot street... used to be a girl worked there called marleen and we would watch her cut cheese behind the counter with a knife.. really thin,  on top of the glass counter  the bread sat, paris buns and belfast baps..
