David , you have so much to be proud of I knew your Dad and Mum, they lived in Greenway and your Aunties they lived on Bryn Road they were all customers of mine when I was in business in Gerard Street . Whenever I visited there was always a warm wellcome and of course cup of tea. I can remember clearly calling to your Mum and Dads in Greenway on a sunny day and having a cuppa on the lawn. They were a lovely family who lived up to their religion, I feel privileged to have known them.

Jelly Sunday was walking day in Downall green. My Dad used to say thats the day they take the coal out the bath and make jelly in it.
