Keeper! Thanks for the comment.Avery close friend of mine also worked with Ski in E S B and always spoke highly of him.I only knew him by sight but,I went to school in Monkstown with his brothers Pat and Jim circa '51 and remember their old man had a motor, now,that was a rarity for those times! Nice to have made contact!

Slipper,

Welcome to the site. What a great introduction. There are so many on here who just have so many happy memories of growing up and as soon as someone hits the trigger we are all off. Post away as we love stories ...ooooand we relly love photographs.

Welcome to the site Slipper. Knew Ski well,worked with him for years in Boland's Biscuit Factory. I remember he went out with Claire Fox and him and Austin O' Dowd were great mates. He was a great Spurs supporter, I remember he organised a trip to Elland Road to see Leeds play them in the early 70's,Leeds won, I think 1-0. Most of us on the trip were Leeds supporters and we were happy chappies but poor old Ski was down in the dumps. Great to hear his name mentioned,I was at his funeral a few years ago actually he's buried in Rathdown cemetery in Greystones. Ski wasn't a bad singer,I remember in the Purty Kitchen on a Saturday night he'd sing" I Remember You"the Frank Ifield hit and he was great at the yodelling bit. May He Rest in Peace.

Snowhite,I'd be very interested to see it if you can find it I worked there for two years '59/'60 and thoroughly enjoyed it as my first work experience. It was a really easy going and friendly where a young fool could make all the mistakes a young fool make and not be too harshly treated for so doing.So I've fond memories of the place and all the people that worked there including owner and manager and as I said I'd love to see the 'photo and also to hear from anyone who worked there.Thanks!

Strum, get a lovely cuddly slipper.

Slipper,
It is so good to hear when people love their first job. I used to try and be kind to new employees and make their first experiences good....I was so lucky to start in Kilmartins and the girls were the "salt of the earth"...I used to skip into work.

Welcome Slipper; look forward to your posts. I knew Ski for many years
he had a lot of names to which he answered:
Ski, Skip, Skipper, Bert, Bertie, Bartholomew, Aloysius, Max, Jampots

he was always very proud of reciting them, hope I haven't forgotten any

For information on family names have a look at http://forebears.co.uk/
It covers all surnames in UK and Ireland, and produces maps for your family name, showing how it was in use throughout Ireland and UK at the time of the 1901 census

Strum! Very appropriate! and I think indicative of the mindset of most of the contributors to this wonderful site i.e., nostalgic and imaginative. I like it very much, thank you!

Thanks Denis, We've never met or spoken to each other but we're of similar age and background and I know and remember you from CBS and the borough in general,[not to mention you stole one of our women].Thanks for comments re; Ski etc.and I've enjoyed your very witty banter with other members.

Hi Sinead,Thanks for the welcome and comment.Reading through the posts throughout this site its apparent that you're a respected source of local history and general knowledge. That being accepted, can you give me any info re; your Tech' 'photo, I was in CBS at that time and I Frank Ifield you and some of the other girls eg; Ann Gethings,Marie Penston, Betty Davis,Claire Fox. I was very interested in a Scottish girl that wore glasses and I think it was around the same time, have you any idea who I'm talking about?
