I think the man and woman in the background of the second picture might be Bernie and Danny Curran ;--) ...........and I would love to know who the young fella operating the "wee Machine" is.

In the last picture,the boy with the blond hair and the girl beside him are Donal and Aisling Curran.
Eugene,when this photo appeared on the Old Newry facebook page it prompted quite a few comments about the Rendezvous Inn.

I remember Betty very well as she and I would meet up at the Roller Skating in the Town Hall at least
three times a week. She was a brilliant skater and showed me many new ways of skating. They were great days indeed.
