Growing up in Sallynoggin

Postby bishi » Mon Sep 27, 2010 2:23 pm

Hi all, 1st post on an absolutely cracking site and much kudos whoever is behind it.

All the old pics has me eager to rustle through the attic and see what I can recover, must have some beauties there to rival what's already been posted.

Anyhow, got me thinking of growing up in the Noggin in 80's and how I would not want it any other way. Few things came to mind -

- the gang of us hanging around Pearse Avenue, the hub of which was the " half hedge " at Jamie Massey's nanny house towards the Green. Members of said " gang " included Gavin Turner, Jamie Massey, Jimmy Hobson, Richard Leddy ( RIP ), me, Sharon Wolfe ( who we were all after ), Karen Flynn, Denis Toner, Keith Thompson, Shane Dunphy, Barry Couch & Claire Couch ( who we were also all after )
- playing squares on the road until the sun went down with only a Commodore 64 to tempt us inside unlike today's Xbox generation
- playing World Cup in the Cuala field with the Gaelic nets with the like of Pat, Collie and Ciaran Tresson and the Kane brothers when they visited their Nan in the top flat at the end of Pearse Ave
- wrestling with the likes of Ollie Turner and Antony Bynre and Noel and Deco Walsh in Anto's garden
- playing footie in Jimmy Byrne's ( of Pearse Ave ) garden using nets his da had got him for putting up in the garden despite the fact they reeked of dead fish
- playing matches on the road using Paul Brown's gate and Mr Dease's gate as nets, giving out when having to break for traffic, but spending 10mins discussing the beauty of Janet Massey after she'd walked by
- Knacker drinking and trying cigarettes with Jamie Massey in the the arse end of Gallaghers field with the gang above
- Hanging around Sefton and jumping onto a hedge about 10ft below with the likes of Karl Holmes, Michael " Squeaky " Austin, David " Dot " Butterly, Jean Keating, Siobhain Austin
- Summer projects with Deano Carragher as my manager
- Compo discos with a guaranteed fight after, normally involving Kieran Kennedy
- Jumping competitions of the at least 20ft Wall between Joeys and the oul wans home
- the long walk home from Ziggy's along Rochestown Ave
- Corals bookies with Alan Kelly, David Baird, Decci Tormey, David Crimmins
- nights out with Billy Forsyth and David " Dot " Butterley
- Halloween bonfires with flaggons with Tony King, Paddy Doyle


Great days, and as above, would not swap them for anything. :)

Welcome to the site Bishi, my hubby is from the noggin but I'd say a bit older than you, but your thoughts on growing up in the noggin are very like his (except for the girls of course....he had only eyes for me :roll: ) ;) ;) :D

I met an old friend today from Sallynoggin and asked if she grew up in Honeypark, which I thought, but no, she grew up in O Rourkes park BUT she said "funny you should ask that" because her parents originally wanted to buy a house in Honeypark, but them both being in the Military the Mother put her foot down and said no way would they buy a House from the British. So apparently Honeypark was all owned by the Brits.
She said there's dates on some of the Houses which I must go and take a look at.
Can anybody throw some light on this. :?:

Well another new nogginer here born and bred,from longford villas a relation of mine has tried to get me on here for ages,so finally here i am.I played football for Pearse rovers and Joes. Worked in the Thatch under Pat doherty and Johnnie nevin,and for those who remember Donal o neill.That was when the Thatch was like the wild west,but was packed seven nights of the week.Raggamuffin on a sunday night and dave and mick on a saturday.The characters that drank there you could write a book about.Andy hand,Nan kane,the panda,May and John green,Bonzo rowe(was barred but used to hide in the corner so you couldnt see him),Tiddler who used to hold his talent show every friday morning in the bar with the stuff he found in the bins as prizes.Luke roche one of the funniest men ever and Charlie byrne they were like a double act.The riot after the summer festival kickboxing in the carpark ,the 1990 world cup best time ever painting the mannaquins face black to make it a cameroon supporter when they played England.The darts on a monday and wednesday nights firsrt place i ever threw a dart.Worked in the Thatch for 13 years loved every minute. But know im a country person living down in Wexford.I miss the old Noggin but not so much the new.
