Item #: 12314
Bernard was Frank Connelly the brother of John who had the butchers on Scholes precinct. Both beltin lads I worked with John in the sixties and used to have a drink with Frank when he lived in Hindley. If it is the same person I didn't know he'd passed.So sad. RIP Frank.
Yes this is the same Frank & John. I have seen John a few times, he works for McGuires funeral services now.
Worked with Walt Faihurst at Triangle Valve Pemberton,he was a RFL ref and touch judge.Also liked his quiz nights.Also new Peter Quail in 70s he moved down to Bedford with his job on railways. Know you a little Bernard I worked with John Molloy at Walmsleys Fast Track and use to go to Skem paper mill.Tell him hope all's ok and one of these day's hope to drop on him.
That Bernard Molloy looks like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth. You ought to know hime now (Ha!).
Thats my middle brother Peter Coote on the front row, me and him and our eldest brother John all went to Thornleigh in Bolton, and my sisters Winnie and Mary went to the Convent. It must have been a record for 5 siblings all from St. Pats to go to grammer schools. Our dad died in 1944 and our Mum Annie brought us all up on her own. We lived in Higham Street.
