Hi Dumble Window. Great to see another Phibsboro person involved in the Forum. It is over five months since this thread was activated and I am delighted at your involvement. Unfortunately I wasted two very important years of my adolescent life thinking I could have been a serious Snooker player. I was 15/16 at the time and gave up a reasonably promising Soccer involvement. I really wasn't that good at snooker and went back to football to play at a reasonably high standard in the AUL Minor League, which was the top Dublin Youth League in the late 1950's. The cottages behind the wagon were Flynn's Cottages. I had friends who lived there.
Your activation of this thread enables me to put up some other entries.

Default Thanks for the welcome

Thank you for the welcome Pegasus and the further info on the picture I posted. Brilliant pictures from you (as always).. You lot are a really friendly bunch so thank you very much for the welcome.

p.s. Sorry about the snooker career, in fairness, a lot of the pro players are alcoholics so, bullet dodged ;-)

Been meaning to say - Dumblewindow - great name! (And I'm not even a Harry Potter fan.)
