I met Maisie Mc Daniel a very long time ago in a record shop in D.L. where she was appearing as main guest at its opening. I could be wrong but I have this persistent memory that the record shop was down near the Sleiths end of the town, yet I cant recall one being there. She looked lovely and had this white cowboy style jacket and a white skirt. I was probably only about 14 then but even though she would have been about 22, I could still appreciate that she was a very attractive woman. I think she was involved in a very bad accident and that unfortunately put paid to her rising career. Sad to see her die at the relatively young age of 62.

Farmboy,
Was that the 'wan' near Tom Whelans and Stephanie McManus Da's shop... vague memories of it though I remember Murrays better, opposite end of the town.

Ruby Murray died in Shoreham, Sussex a few year ago, I used see her about the town when I stayed at Steyning... do you know that she was more famous for having her name slanged as " A Ruby Murray" ('ave a Curry) than all her songs !!! She died in sad circumstances as well, God bless the Lady...

hi Farmboy
re maisie -yes she always wore the white frilled shirt and boots on stage and in photos
I have an e.p of maisies from donkeys-must dig it out of the attic
and scan the cover -if Iremember correctely she was backed by a uk instrumental group (now I'll have to get up there tomorrow -gawd knows what i'll find --watch this space :D )

as far as I can remember the record shops in Dun Laoghaire were-

murrays -stoneview------fannings -marine road--woolworths sold records too(who I hear you ask)---Jerry rafferty -connisuier(or whatever :roll: ) records down at the corner of york rd.

I dont remember any others -

maybe enviro can help there?

Hi Enviro and Grammer, I could be wrong but I think Enviro,s location of that record shop is right. Maybe it didnt stay open for very long and thats why most people dont remember it. I knew a guy way back when who was bigtime involved in the music business. I,m pretty sure he had Maisie on his books and I remember he was great mates with Gallagher and Lyle who were also belonging to his outfit....Polydor comes to mind although grammer might correct me on that one.

Well done Grammer. I remember the Fontana record label, maybe she was always on it or maybe it was affiliated to Polydor anyway. I know poor Maisie had a pretty bad drink problem which probably contributed to her early demise, so sad . Great blast from the past that pic. :cool:
