Yes indeed gerfin, I know a chap although not very well called Ellard. I think he,s a postman. I remember a Paddy Brock from the farm, a big stocky fella, I havent seen him for many years. I used frequent Dave Fisher,s bookies beside Gunnings shop, which used be Kavanaghs and I think before that Byrnes? Anyway these two lovely old dears used be there most afternoons having their little flutter. Not sure if one of them was Mrs Brock, but the other lady was Mrs Finn I think. One of them must have had very poor vision cos she wore glasses one lens of which was more like a small telescope! :D Even at that she had to go right up to the paper to read the form. I think Dave Fisher has a gift or pen shop in D.L. shopping centre now, a Liverpudlian and a nice fella. He used to live right on the roundabout in the Farm, the house right on the edge of Highthorn Park from which I was raised.

The chap in the above post, Dave, had a beautiful tall blonde daughter. There was a family of about 6 brothers lived next door to them and when the daughter went out to sunbathe in the "privacy" of her back garden, there was fisticuffs next door to grab the best vantage point in the back bedroom! Boys will be boys! :D

Ref the Brock and Ellard Families, there were two familes of Brocks in St Patrick's Crescent. One family lived in No 9 (Molly Brock) and the other in No 13 (Peggy and Jim) The Ellard family lived on the other side of the road, not sure of the house no. They lived next door to the Walsh family.

Chris,
Was Maura Owens (nee Hill) sister married to the Ellard chap, about early 1960s.

Maura Owens husband was Kevin who drove the 46A & 58 buses for years. The kids in the Owens were Emily, Tommy, Tony and John. I lived almost next door to them in St Pats Cr.

Hi Enviro500

I think Mrs Ellard was Maura Owens sister. Her name was Patsy and Mr Ellard's name was Pat.

Snowhite. Ref Denis and Charlie Brock. There are 3 girls and 4 boys in the family, apart from me they all live in Shankhill/Ballybrack area. I left in 1970.

Hi Chris,
Dead right, Patsy Ellard, I remember well and her hubby. Kids were younger than I.
Are you a Brock, I am sure one of the Brock girls posted on here about a year ago...she lives in Northamptonshire maybe Corby ?

I knocked around with Paddy Cahill. 1 St Patricks then and I met him in the Club in Dalkey about three years ago. I was a great to see him after 40 years.
Remember Maureen ORielly, I remember the day they house burnt down and it was a frightening experience and the first time I ever saw a Fire Appliance in action.. It was one of the old Leyland types where there was no roof and the men sat along the sides.. Funnily enough Maureen married Henry Hobbs and guess what...he became a Firefighter in Dun Laoghaire.. I woner how those people are now.. such memories. David Hobbs and myself were friends as they lived opposite the Owens family.
Maybe Maureen wasn't taking any chances again !!!!

I may have asked this before but, did anyone know a family named O Neill who lived on the Farm. I courted one of the girls named Agnes for a long time before leaving Ireland. Her father trained horses. The farm was being constructed at that time.
