hello again bhelena,remember some of the wee shops in my mind,but cant put names to them,i remember billy,s wee shop his wife had very sore looking eyes.i always thought that she was blind at one time and got her sight back,very pleasant woman.drank in the wee bar at the end of boundary st not sure if it was called nolans or dolans,and the one up from boomer st corner bath place,i think it was called smyths.funny the way men can remember the names of bars but not shops ;D :D
it was dolans bar i wonder do you remember the gladstone bar.

i was never in the gladstone i just remember my walking me past it when the weather was was good we  would up to the clonard picture house to get the bus up to the glen rd i hated the walk we could have got the bus facing raffoes but it was cheaper from the clonard.

everything changes bhelena,i would not live down the road now,dont get me wrong i love the falls,i loved the pound loney when i was a kid but it,s all gone,i told my kids first now im telling my grand children as they ask me what was it like in the olden days,christ we are getting old.i think its worse for somebody who has been away for a lot of years,i love coming on the forum the nostalgia its great,i was in contact with a cousin on the forum,would you believe i have never met him ,this is a wee bit of history we are putting down just by talking on the forum,and to think a lot of months ago i did not know what a computer looked like :idiot2:my son who lives in america give it to me to keep in contact.all the best desi
