Denis, I think when all young girls wanted to be Debbie when they saw just how
talented she was. We all thought Liz Taylor a b..ch when she stole Eddie Fisher
and then discarded him.
May Debbie and her daughter find peace.

Geoge Murray, of Murrays Records fame has passed on.

http://www.hotpress.com/news/Record-sho ... 83886.html

Many happy teenage Saturdays spent in the Dun Laoghaire or Grafton Street store. I remember in the late seventies I worked in Dawson Street and spent a lot of lunch times in Murrays. George had a great enthusiasm for new wave music and consigned bands which he consided as past it or has beens to a bin labelled "No Hopers". Another memory was when I was buying a live album by some rock dinosaur and he gave me a disparaging look and said,
"You're young, why are you buying this rubbish?" and shamed me into buying an album by a group called The Only Ones instead. He was right, I still play it.

The loss of a one of a kind with the death of Ken Whitaker, may he Rest in Peace. I can
certainly be said 'he did the State some service'. A gentle giant and most unassuming man.

Was at Willie Tracey's funeral today, a real good Dun laoghaire man. He was raised a couple of doors up from me in Dominick St. He was a seaman all his working life,20 years at deepsea and the rest in the Irish Lights. He married one of the Enright's from Glasthule and lived there during his married life.One of his son's is a priest and he officiated at the funeral which could not have been easy for him. Willie was a very friendly gentle person with a deep love for Dun Laoghaire and it's people.

Farewell Martin McGuinness, like him or loathe him .... he was a key player in the peace process and must have had some amount of courage and conviction as he was hated by all sides at one time or another. Sometimes it takes people to step up and lead, to act and to make sacrifices, I think Martin sacrificed many old friendships in order to bring about peace for the majority in Northern Ireland.

May he rest in peace.

That's my feeling to Toss. Like him or loathe him you could never deny his courage. May he rest in peace.

Have to agree with you Toss. I never thought the day would come that I would praise Martin but, he stood up and was counted. Sad to see how ill he got! As an old Northern friend of mine said "you got to get in the ring if you want to win". Ar dheis Dé go raibh anaman.

I had no love for Mr. McGuinness but he did stand in the ring and help bring
peace, whether or not he created some of the carnage - I cannot be that judge.
He was so frail over the past few months it was sad to look at him. I hope he
finds peace.

Still time for my favorite Ronnie Corbett joke . . .

A girl walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a "double entendre"
So he gave her one.

Give me the old "Fork Handles" anyday :lol:

Getting back to anniversaries...My Da was 55 years dead on 25 March...seems like only yesterday. Wouldn't he have loved this site and he would have had loads of real old Dunlaoghairelite stuff to relate. Even though circumstances brought us to live in Blackrock he still brought us to Dún Laoghaire at every possible opportunity. You can take the lad from the town...etc
