  1. My name is AILEEN McCarthy, my grandmother was Johanna(Josie) Donovan from Clehanes cottages. I remember my nan went with a group from the parish to RTE in Dublin to be in the audience of live at 3. If anyone has any idea where I could get a copy of this show I’d be really grateful, I’ve tried the rte archieves on & off over the past few years without any luck. It would mean the world to me to get a copy of it as it holds such happy childhood memories for me. I can remember the excitement lasts weeks at the thought my nan would be on tv! If anyone can help in any way I’d really appreciate it, yours sincerely, AILEEN McCarthy

  2. What a wonderful site Ken, so many happy memories of the Lower Road, I lived in no 49 from 1960 until I got married in 1981. The best neighbours one could ask for, I think at one time the road had 13 pubs ( well 13 that I can remember) I will look for any old photos I may have, and again well done on the site. Pat O’ Shea
