Older people knew the pub as The Stone Ale House.

Brings back memories!

My uncle Jim McNulty was the landlord for
many a year and I think his wife, my aunts parents had it before them.

Mick; You`ll be apprehended for being drunk in charge of a push bike next! You could have put your bike against the wall of a house in the photo.

The house at the right hand end of the row was renovated some years back and it seemed to take forever to complete it. Looks OK now. To the left of that row is a road to a farmhouse and a footpath passing the end of Woochie and on to where I lived at Bent Houses.
