Paddy Daly and his family probably moved to Jack White's Corner about the late 1950's, I am not sure, but I do remember the house being built when we were only youngsters.
Paddy Daly ran a block making business where Noel Rooney lives now, the Daly family lived in the house on the corner where Joe Rooney lives now.
Paddy Daly used to grow melons in his garden,and when we were kids, about 1960, we(Bingo White, Patsy Ruddy & myself) jumped to over the wall and whipped them out of the ground, i have to say back then, but I was very disapointed with melons.
The late Paddy 'Buttons' Ruddy was a valued employee of the Daly firm, until the unfortunate Buttons had an accident with the block-making machinery, when he lost some fingers in the afforementioned accident. This happened about 1958, as the Ruddy family were living in Forth Avenue then. We use to walk to school with Patsy and Francie (Monk), and their father would wave to us every morning on the way past.
Last year I saw John Daly coming down from the house, maybe he was taking a nostalgic look at his old home, I think he lives in Dublin now.
Would he be about 65 now?
Paddy Daly was an Armagh man originally,I think, but he married Annie Newbanks from Post Office St./ Mary St.,she was a great friend of Rosaleen Kelly from Duke St.
I hope I am correct with those details.
Would the Daly/Newbanks family have lived in the house where the Lynch's were reared?

When we moved from Post Office/Mary St. to Clonallon Gds,
Paddy Daly moved us in his truck.
I was only 6 at the time so I don't remember where he lived.
Don said he lived in Lynch's house before they moved to
the new house.

On behalf of my confederates and myself, a belated apology to the Daly family for taking their melons back in 1960, but it was Bingo White and Patsy Ruddy's idea.

I do see Angela Daly/Rooney about, she has not changed a bit.Where does she live?

If memory serves me well, and I could be wrong here,I seem to remember Paddy Boyle, spending a considerable ammount of time duking around that house.

I wonder why???

dukestreet :I just spotted your mention of the block making business at White's corner. When we used to walk home from school I remember seeing this man making concrete blocks. At that time he had no mechanical aids and mixed the concrete by hand, which is very hard work. He had a sort of metal box the exact size of the block and he used fill this with concrete and then bang the lid down several times to compact the mix. He then opened the top and used a lever to raise the block out of the mould. Each block was sitting on its own flat piece of wood and had to be laid out on the ground to harden. I remember thinking at the time that it looked like hard work. He would probably be impressed with the modern machinery, doing the same job. Stanley

Spot on Termonfeckin, I don`t know who you are but that`s exactly where it was, played out in the warmth of the Spanish sun all those years ago..........with more vigour than skill I must add, although Benny McKay and some of the others might disagree ....................................................
