I was born in the shamrock 29.4.1957 My John Patrick Conway and Mother Margaret (Peggy) Conway had the pub for about 5 years, we moved from there to the white swan pub in Scholes about 1960

What a well kept pub., steps white with rubbing stone , white sham blinds and curtains a credit a credit to the landlord and landlady . The car belonged to my cousin John Kileen, it was a great treat in those days to be able to sit inside a car.

So many photos of Old Scholes - my heart aches looking at them- what a treasure trove they are. I have been looking at these pictures ever since they were put on this site and never tire of looking at them....
