Hello Charlie :) I remember you very well. i wonder if you could share any stories with me please? my dad would never say alot, but Ive been told very recently that they still talk about him in Wigan! with respect of course ! hehe
Linda, can't think of any at the moment (good or bad ??) I'll let you know if I do !

I'll not keep you guessing any longer Harold ... Mick Finney.
hi mick just been looking at some comments cant remember brian north?
This is a very rare photograph i.e. Charlie NOT on the telephone. Joking apart, a lovely fella,who did his best for everyone (public and the lads he worked with) Our nickname for him 'UNCLE'' says it all. Charlie, if your wondering who wrote this, remember I was always saying to you, 'We didn't do it like that in St.Helens borough' Best boss I ever had. K.W.
Just clocked this......KW,is that you wilkey???
Keith, thankyou for those kindly comments about me. Others thought otherwise. Do you happen to know if St Helens still does things the round way round ?? You still kicking Brian? Not spotted you for a while even though we only live round the corner from each other.
Hi Charlie. Do you remember in the Wigan D.H.Q bar one night when you were coming out with the beef about J.J. Lawson's wife being pregnant again. Then I dropped it on your toes that the person I was with was the curate at St. Andews Church at Springfield. Your replies are not printable! Anyway nice to see you are stll around.
Hello again Uncle Charlie, sorry but I,ve only just seen your last entry. Be sure that ALL of our crew agreed with my comments and those who DID think otherwise don't matter to us anyway. You deserved a medal for keeping our lot in check. Do you remember, Malc, Jimmy, Mick and of course the 'main man' KLON' What a character he was and what a sad loss to us all.Won't go on and on so just to say I'll speak to you soon. All the best
Brian North, apologies Brian, forgot to say 'Hello' (It's the brain cells dying you know!!) hope you are fit and well.
All the best Fatty.
Just on the left as you went through the gate was a cellar where the incinerator was.
Myself and John Collins used to tell Agnes the cleaner that there was a very large Aardvark living down there.
We explained what one was and she was always terrified of going near the place. Sometimes we would go in there unbeknown to her and make scary noises when she was close by or passing. Happy days!!
How you keeping these days, hope your in fine fettle.
I stubbed across my Dads pictures and comments tonight.
I am the proud son of Charlie "auto right" O'Leary.
It's great to see that he was respected and a good guy as my Dad passed away on 26th February 2016 after a 12 month illness from a stroke and stage 4 lung cancer..
Dads gone to be with my Mum.
RIP Charlie, only just heard of your passing. I would have been at the funeral had I known sooner. Lovely guy, I hope you and my Dad are having a ball in heaven together x
