Hi Pauline
welcome -
If the Ebbs family were in the Farm -40s 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s someone here Im sure will remember them
if you are going way way back

PAULINE, GRAMMER,

Check my previous posts re Arthur Ebbs, A well known well respected man in "The Farm" we kids all knew Arthur Ebbs who delivered milk from his van in the afternoons, always wore a cap and had some brilliant sayings, which I commented about previously.
I think the shop opposite the "Statcha"" as it was referred to was run by old "DOC Lyons", another Farm character

I think the Ebbs family lived up in Lanesville, Ebbs, a very unusual name, possibly Palatine (Germany) originally .

Grammer,
Thank you for the response.
I know they there were Ebbs in the 1940's as I believe my great grandmother Mary (Anne) O'Toole married into the Ebbs family and my grandfather had half brothers called Ebbs.

I don't know if they had a shop in the farm opposite the statue at Oliver Plunkett Avenue but my uncle Shay Tormey (RIP) lived very close to it.

I am searching geneology sites and the British Army archives as my grandfather served in WW1.

Do you know if there are any Ebbs in the area now?
Thanks again
Pauline

Michael Ebbs And Mrs Ebbs lived in 39 St. Patrick's Crescent, Monkstown Farm,they had 3 children Bridé, Micháel and Kathleen. Micháel and Kathleen emigrated to England and Bridé went to live in Dublin. When Mr and Mrs died the house was returned to the Corporation.My wife June lived in 40 St. Patrick's Crescent and this is her recollection.

Hi May,

The very one. Sorry for the late reply,I've been away for the last 6 weeks and would you believe it I'm in Australia of all places at the Moment.I met Maureen O'Toole at Elizabeth Galligans funeral a couple of months ago and we were talking about old times. It was real sad to think Elizabeth had passed away,she was such a lovely person. She left a really nice family,one of her sons said a few words at the church and I've never heard anyone give a better account of the mother he loved and what she meant to them all.
Good to here from you,hope you are in good health and it was very sad to hear that Brendan had died.


Denis

Back home now May. We had a great time in Melbourne and I can see why so many people chose to live in Australia. It's a beautiful place and the people are so friendly. :D

Hello there, I know this post was in 2011, but I just came across it. Arthur Ebbs was my Grandad and his daughter Anne is my mum. So if you needed to know anything about him please let me know. Also if anyone happens to have any photos I would love to see them.

Hi Loukane55
I remember your granddad delivering milk to our house back in the day
I also remember a Brendan Ebbs who as far as I remember was a guitarist
Was he a son or grandson of Mr Ebbs the milkman ??

hellllo hellllo Hi Loukane55, I also remember your Grandad. He delivered milk for many years to my Gran in the Farm and to our house in Glasthule. I remember him as a very nice man and he always seemed to be in good humour. My parents were on first name terms with him and there was always plenty of banter going on. He talked a lot about his family to my Mother and I think that Brendan was Arthur's son , would that be correct? Quite often Arthur would deliver a verbal message to my Mother from my Gran and often bring a reply back to the Farm, so he provided more than a milk delivery service! Your post brought many good memories to mind. Unfortunately I don't have any photos. hellllo

Hi Loukane55,
My parents, living on Oliver Plunkett Road, were customers of Mr Ebbs, a lovely man. He was a very reliable milkman, knocking on our front door, delivering the milk in all kinds of weather.
I remember his van and the milk churns in it.
He had a measuring can with a long thin vertical metal handle, as I recall and a mini churn full of milk. Did the can hold a pint? Anyway, at the front door he'd fill the proffered jug using the measuring can. He'd get paid once a week, on Fridays I think it was. Back then the milk was full cream milk, none of your low fat milk etc ;) .....it was beautiful.

Thank you all for the lovely memories of my Grandad. I will pass on all the information to his son Brendan and his daughter (my mum) Anne. If anyone has any more lovely stories of even photos, I would love this. Thanks again.
