Hi Margaret, I remember going to St Ignatius to see a play the pupils put on... St Bernadette. It was wonderful. I wanted to go there with some of my friends and remember being upset that I could not go but I cannot remember who they were now. Other friends who I went to St Joseph's with were Una Mannion, Bridget Brady and Dolores Maughan.

We lived in "Rooms" at 36 Brunswick street when we were first married. There was a shop opposite run by a guy called Norman. We used to get our coal from Huskinsons coal yard. My wife grew up around that area and lived in St Leonard street.

It was nice to read your post about living at 19 Berick Street as I lived at 9 Berick Street.
I so remember your Nini as she looked after all the kids of the neighbour or to me it seemed she did.
Nini lived in the basement or on the main floor didn't she?
I remember your family having visitors from Scotland one of them a young boy who would chase the girls saying at the top of his lunges " let's catch the lasses"
I think I went to school with Peter as well.
I remember playing house on the Croft. We made houses out of bricks on the ground and items taken from the bombed houses.
Our family name is Dervan,there were 5 of us at that time. John,Fran, Kate, Stephen and Michael. We left I think in 1960 or 61 not sure about that.
There was a scrap yard to the left of our house and a Croft to the right.
The Murphys lived In the next house along from the Croft.the Mothers name was Mary she had a son called Johnny not sure of the other children.
Our Doctor had a surgery at the top of the street on the righth hand side of the road he was called Dr Valance.
A great man he took all the kids of the street to Blaclpool in the summer. He rented the old Garret at Christmas and gave all the kids a party and a gift.
Just some of the happy memories of living in Berick Street.

Hi Martin Q,
I used to go to the Holy Name School, and was a friend of your brother(?)  JohnJo.
I did meet him many years ago, but lost his number. I'd be grateful for any news of him.
