Re: Births, Deaths, Marriages and Anniversaries

Yes, Denis, Liam was in the Brothers with us, and was also a member of the SJAB , along with a few other fellas from the Noggin. The last time I met Liam was when my wife was in Sir Patrick Dun's Hospital, so it's hardly surprising that I didn't recognise him in the photo on RIP.ie. May they both re...

Re: Somewhere to Chat.

I think County Dublin Road Club were based in the Boro, Denis, and Sorrento originated in Dalkey before moving down to your neck of the woods.

Re: Somewhere to Chat.

Yes indeed, Den, one of those unsung heroes you never see on the winners' podiums, but whose dedication keeps all sport moving along. I see quite a lot of cyclists pass by my house on their weekend training runs, but I don't know if there are any clubs still surviving in the Boro'.

And don't forget Tommy Campbell, who was in our class, and is still very much involved with Bray Wheelers and Irish Cycling.

That's right, Rocker. On emerging from the sea the bottom of the togs was so heavy with water that we all looked like the Elephant Man.

Yes, and apart from his football ability he was a genuinely nice guy. Thanks for the update Keeper/Denis.

Re: Births, Deaths, Marriages and Anniversaries

Didn't know Joe, RIP, but remember Willie well. As Den says, one of the best footballers ever to come out of the Boro. Didn't he get an International cap?
I don't think that I once laid eyes on him after I finished school/college.....did he remain living locally?

Re: Computer problems etc

Apparently Jabra has a new computer, but is unable to access this site. I have sent a PM to Strum to see if he can be of any assistance to him, but have received no reply. It appears that Strum hasn't been on here since August 3oth.

You've certainly been through the mixer, Snowy. Glad to hear you're on the mend, and good luck with the next bit. Certainly no harm waving goodbye to the ole' Woodbines!
