Great photos Deirdre, where did you get those from?
In the first photo, Jimmy Barry and Noel Sterritt.
Second photo, Peter McGivern, and I am unsure of the other chap, would he be a Rooney from Clonitifleece, only a guess?

I heard Jimmy Barry recite 'The Chapel Fence' (by Owen Connolly of Burren,) and it was word perfect, as one would expect of that gifted old thespian, in your Aunt Molly's pub about 35 years ago, and I felt priviledged to be present that night.

Deirdre - great photos.
I worked with Margaret and Joy
Sterrit in Reeds, so it is nice to
see a photo of their father, and
of course Clonallon Gds neighbours.

Deirdre - looked like a nice pub.
I see my brother Brian in one of the
photos.
Growing up in Warrenpoint I never was
in licenced premises so I didn't know what
they looked like.
Once on a General Holiday trip to Dundalk
and Blackrock, with stops in Carlingford
and Omeath coming back, we stopped
at a pub, where my Dad had a pint and we
had something to eat.

Yes Maureen, that was Brian.

At one time he was a regular.

It was a well run family pub with Aunt Molly at the helm.

She didn't put up with any nonsense and didn't get any.
It was mostly a Mans pub, very few woman went in. Some but it was mostly a man's domain.
Never had any bother in her pub. All good friendly conversation. No TV, Music or Pool table.

A conversation pub. Many a times the world was put to rights there.

Great memories of my wonderful Aunt and all her customers and friends.

It was probably the only pub I was in growing up except The Yankee Bar at the bottom of the street, neighbours.

Deirdre

Deidre is the wee man wearing glasses and a dog sitting on his lap Freddie Martin?

Who is the man at the edge of the bar wearing the cap?

Good stuff Michael. Sharp, McGuffin and Mc Mahon old friends of mine. The pub was a great watering hole and place to meet friends.

Deirdre - these are memories of your
Aunt Molly, that you will probably
cherish forever.
I never had the pleasure of knowing her,
but by her photos, she seemed like a
very warm and gentle person.

Thanks Maureen for those kind words. Yes she was all that and more.... Kathleen would have known all the McCabes pretty well.
