lilybo,  how can you remember when we moved? ???   i think it was raining, did you help us.   the cottages were at the corner of the st. the donoghues lived on.   the cottages are not there now they were tore down a long time ago and i believe a dr's office is there now, i could be wrong.    i remember having to walk to the glen rd to get a bus  to the top of the donnie and then one down the donnie to get to work.   i remember the long walk home when they took the buses of because they were burning them but that's another story.   sixtyniner

bhelena, meant to put this in the other posting.  we lived on the glen rd  near the bottom.  they were white cottages, we lived there with my dad's mom  till we got a new house in turf lodge.  i can remember the night we moved and my memory is shot so it must have been some move ;D sixtyniner
was I right about your sister did she pass her 11+

bhelena, tried phoning my sister to see if she got the 11+ but she was not in so i sent of an email, will let you know when she gets back to me.  told her about ''belfast forum" so she might even go on.   i don't remember much about then except my sisters and  my brother were the smart ones in the family :idiot2: so that leaves only me ha ;D.   lilybo talked about her and her sister beating the ## out of each other  well  i can remember my sister (marion)  and i doing that one day in the bathroom  and my mother just stood there in the kitchen not making a move.   sixtyniner

bhelena, all my sisters were smart, i think i got the stupid gene ;D  my brother was the smartest of us all but.  i went to little flower sec. intermed. school on summerton rd.  i use to have to take two buses but i liked reading on the bus so it was cool.  i don't know why my mother never sent me to st. Teresa's when we moved to the glen rd.  my older sister Bridie and i had to still travel to st patrick's on  donegal st.  and then she did the 11+  and left school  and later i went on to little flower.  wow listen to all this history.

I don't remember your move but it is our move that I remember LOL = now I also remember the cottages and you are right there is a doctor's surgery there now.  The two Miss Hillons still live in Norfolk Parade they taught in St. John's and were the sisters of Miss Hillon from St. Teresa's, neither of them ever married still living as spinsters there.

I remember the burning buses and the burning offices, the only reason I was allowed to go to London wa

s because the office I worked in down in York Street was petrol bombed becuase Larry McMahone and all of us were catholics (happy days).

Ann went to London with Mary just before that and Ann never wnet back to Belfast, she still lives in

London, her mother eventually moved over to London to stay with her and she died a few years back.
Get down on your knees and thank God you are still on your feet.
