I seem to remember Brian telling me that 'Buttons' was the first person in Warrenpoint to have a television.........not sure if that's true? Anybody know why he was called Buttons?

Buttons & family certainly had the first TV in Forth Ave and were wonderful in allowing all us kids in to see "The Lone Ranger" and "what's my line" at tea time on a Saturday. In those days Lexie Donnan left a 14" screen TV on in his shop window frequently in the evenings, and people would be standing at his shop window at the corner of Duke St. & Charlotte St. looking at the little screen and unable to hear the sound.

The Ruddy family also had the first colour TV I ever heard of in Warrenpoint,it was a massive thing in a wooden cabinet....ours was like a postage stamp :rotfl: .Everyone used to gather in their house to watch Top of the Pops and the Hollywood Musicals in colour.
