Hi Folks, my Husbands Great Grandfathers brother was Robert/Bobby Conaghan who lived in Blackhill in the 50's, 60's and 70's. I am led to believe that he was a bit of a legend in the area, so much so that they named a lounge at the Molendinar after him(The Conaghan Lounge). He was married to Sarah Johnstone and had 3 children - Rubina(Ruby) who moved to Canada, Jack, who now lives in East Kilbride and another daughter Frances who stayed in Glasgow. When he died the people of Blackhill wrote a poem that was read out at his Funeral in 1979. I have a newspaper clipping that has a picture of him in a back court in Blackhill with the MP Teddy Taylor. Unfortunately only the photo survived and the story is missing. Does anyone out there remember him or have any stories about him.
All The best
Lorna.

Hi All

I'm new to the site and havin a trawl around. I noticed a post (no 5) from Floydian who mentions John and Agnes Trimble. Floydian, if it's the same couple they would have been my aunty and uncle. My mum's maiden name was Isabella Trimble and she would have been John's big sister. If you want to know more leave me a post!! Corbymags

RE Daly,

Are you ,by any chance ,Helen Daly. My name is Michael Henaghan and lived on the ground floor of the close opposite the Carlins'.
I know Margaret and Betty as well as Danny Ogilvie and also remember the day the twins were born in their house ,which was the custom then. I recall them being rushed to hospital in incubators shortly after they were born.
I can't recall their names but maybe the son was called James after your brother.
Your brother James had a motorbike and would quite often give me a lift to School which was St Mungo's at Townhead.

Hi all I was born in 1973, me and my brothers Frany and JoJo were raised in 25 maryston st. My Dad was John McDade but usually refered to as Daity McDade not Dante Alex McDade people get them mixed up. His brothers and sisters were all raised in 39 craigendmuir st (Mick , Rae, Margret and Cathy Mcdade). My mum nee Lesley Nee Griffin were also raised in Maryston st along with her two sisters Margret and Patsy Griffin. Their mum and Dad were Rab and Winnie Griffin who later moved onto 57 Provanmill Rd and then Gala St Riddrie where I now live in their old house. My mums Grandparents also lived in 25 Maryston st Jimmy Whelan And Isabella Whelan , their kids were Winnie Whelan( my Grandmother) James ,Cathy, Lexi and Jean. My Great Grand mother Isabella was German and I would love too hear from anyone who knew any of my family. Cheers BYT
