  1. No health and safety then. No one holding the ladder. We would be locked up today for that. I’d swear I passed that day. Great photo great memory to have

  2. This brings back memories of my younger days. In the 1950s I used to visit there every morning to see my grandmother , aunt Hannah and uncles Johnny and Seamus.

    1. Pat…What a wonderful memory. I can especially recall in the early 1960s the delicious aroma of steak and onions coming from the very welcoming Twomey’s Shop and Restaurant as I daily cycled home for lunch from school at 12.30pm….I used to dream that this would be on my plate also when I arrived home!!
