Just got back from 10 days in Ireland yesterday, haven't been in UK since 1989, but go visit my wife's home in Clare every couple of years. Get to catch up on Corrie, and Ennerdale, so probably need to get a life. Ireland has become too expensive to live, and I daresay UK isn't a lot different, but I'd still like to take a good racing bike out into the high peaks, and stop for a quick pint at the Foxhouse or Peacock on my way home. I also got to see ManU beat Arsenal in a nice pub on Sunday, just in time to find out Boston Red Sox had beaten the hated NY Yankees in the pennant race. What a day!

 

Buck, good to see you had a good time in Ireland, we love it over there, and have friends in Galway. you should try getting out to clare Island, that's a great place. There again I have never been to a bad place in the Emerald Isle. They also have peat fires...now there's something to savour.

Your right Owdlad, I spent a few days in County Wicklow this year and it was fantastic.

Great scenery in the Mountains and fantastic beach in Britas Bay.

Hope to go back in the spring for some cycling.

Hi Brooksy,

 

We were sort of mates for a while, your Dad and me, - did the same job at Alloy Steel Rods on different shifts, but I often had to sub as furnaceman so we'd end up on the same shift. He used to drop me off home, or after the morning shift we'd go up to Shiregreen club for a game of snooker and a few jars. A nice quiet, gentle bloke, but a wicked sense of humour with people who took themselves and life too seriously....used to wind them up something rotten - me included :D

 

Is he still around ?

i played darts for shiregreen club in the 50s a 60s

we came runners up in ciu all england knockout in 66 i think

Enjoy reading all your memories of Attercliffe, brought a lot of my own back. I was born on Saville Street and enjoyed my trips up The Cliff . But Please!!! stop calling the railway bridge Norfolk Bridge. This bridge is in fact on Leveson Street, theres even a plaque on it saying Norfolk Bridge.
