I hope folks are still checking this blog, I came upon this because my brother sent me the information about our house 14 sallynoggin villas and then I found this ... Phil I was your sister'd Dymphna's friend Joan Tracy and spent many friday and saturdays there keeping her company and helping out, so all of your memories are mine. I am in Canada for the last 30 odd years, but never ever forget the friday rashers and sausage order and how your Mam was the most amazing kind woman, I will also never forget her earrings, they seemed to be like the crown jewels :), almost all I learned for life I learned in your Mothers shop .... kindness, forgiveness, tolerance, not to forget Joanie!
We are still back and forth to sallynoggin, not for much longer, Joan and Mick from #14 are now in Dalkey Lodge. Safe and sound!
Cheers, and thanks for posting, there have been many times over the years, I reflect and wonder where people ended up.

Joan,

Great to hear from you. We are such chatterboxes on this site that we go off on tangents but, now that you have brought this topic to the top of the list people will start remembering and posting. I am not from Sallynoggin but visited my Aunt and Uncle there and they always had all the chat about the place..they were there from when the houses were built ...the Ballances..they lived across from the Noggin Inn then moved to the little houses opposite the Leinsters. I should have taken notes of all the stories. Like most children at the time we thought the elders were talking ramish and they were actually relating history.

Put up all your stories and any photos you have and you will jog people's memory.

What a lovely thing to say that you learned kindness, forgiveness and tolerance in the shop. There are still wonderful people who touch others every day and make it all worth while.
So many of our families are going to Canada now you will hear the Irish accent everywhere.

Welcome Johannat, isn't it wonderful to see old friends reunited. I remember O'Tooles shop in Sallynoggin, but never really spent too much time in it. We lived in Pearse Close when I was young and we always went to the "bottom" shops. Betty Carey's, Mr. Cush and Arthur, Baldy Brennan and the glamorous Celine, not forgetting Mr and Mrs Smith in the Post Office. Welcome to the site and keep posting memories, there's always someone watching in.

Hello Joahannat, I meet a lot of Canadians. You are lucky to be living amongst a nice bunch of people. I had family in O'Rourkes Park and spent many a time talking shite in the Noggin Inn. In those days you could get tanked and still go hell for leather on your motor bile. Not that I would encourage it. But there was a sense of less laws then, and a feeling of freedom. Please go on about the Noggin and things you remember.

Hi johannat, you mention not to forget Joanie. Well Joanie was my Aunt, my father,s sister and a wonderful woman. I dont really remember much about Mrs O Toole but if she was all the nice things you say then it must have been fantastic to have known two such exceptional women next door to each other. If I had to use one word to describe joanie it would be kindness but I,d be here all day if I were to describe all her other qualities, she was such a lady.

Does anyone know what Arthur's (the corner shop) surname was, or Celine's surname?
