Re: Around the town.

Sounds like a nice guy to deal with. Several years ago my dear old mum suggested I buy Ecco shoes, she said they were the most comfortable shoes she,d ever worn. I took her advice and haven't looked back (or put a foot wrong since) :roll: 8-) They are pricey but last for years and look good too,at t...

Re: Navanman's Photos

Heres a rather blurry pic of my Renault 16 with my daughter (33 in a few days) standing at the side. Think this is the only shot I have of it, as you can see my camera wasn't the best modelavailable at the time! :roll: ;)

Re: Navanman's Photos

I was a bit like that meself Navanman, never really liked anyone driving my car except myself. When I got the Renault a mate asked me to let him drive it so I reluctantly let him, warning him that the column gears were different to a standard gearstick. Well, this git crunched the hell outa them and...

Re: Glasthule.

Hi Derrindaffderg and thanks for the reply. No, my grandmother,s name isn't on the list you have. They lived in number 4 which you would assume had to be next door. They are listed in the 1911 Census as being there with their 2 daughters and 1 son. They went on to have another son and daughter over ...

) Harjoe, I think you're a bit confused there; Presentation Grounds were , as you say, on Hudson Road opposite Congress Gardens. But Beaufort was on the main (Sandycove) road, just up from the Astoria, next door to Paul Cullen's house. On a different (off!) topic, I see an argument on F/Book about t...

Thats very interesting Farmboy as when I first heard the story from my Mother 20 odd years ago she too told me that it was the Black & Tans. Isn't it strange how the facts get muddied over the years? She also told me that my Grandfather was the youth who alerted the Volunteers. My good friend Jay t...

Re: Glasthule.

Would anyone be able to point out where 3 Carrolls Cottages is on this map from 1908? Being a distant relation of Joseph "Sonny" Hudson ( My Mother's people are Hudson's ) I have been interested in his story for many years. http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a623/Derrindaffderg/CarrollsCottages-Co...
