Mrs McComb lived in No 2 in 1940/50 with her housekeeper/companion Miss Evans. Dr
Malcolm Redman and his brother lived in No 1 for a while.

I am having difficulty understanding the McCluskey story. A Mrs McCluskey in her ninetys died in 2010. Her mother in law also Mrs McCluskey died in Number 1 Princes St in 1943. It is possible that the latter Mrs McCluskey's husband John McCluskey who would have had the wherewithal financially and could have built these houses about 1912. However the McCluskeys resided in Clonallen Glebe where John died in 1939. Can anyone add any new information to this.

I've nothing to add to the story, I"m afraid, save to say that in my childhood, in 40s/50s, the house owned latterly by Rory Best on Moygannon Road was known as McCluskeys, while the field formed by the bow of the river at that point was referred to as McCluskey's meadow.
