I remember, aound the 60s when she was breaking through, they reported that she got noticed when singing at the Drum Chapel laugh.gif She must have been with Mary Hill and Paul Madee rolleyes.gif

Very funny. Read this four times before penny dropped. But despite the banter I think you are off the mark. I think you mean Dennis Town - what used to be the roller-skating before the botox bombshell screeched her way to notoriety.

That explains a lot. I always thought she was a tad odd.

By the way is Lulu, Molly Weir's daughter as there is a quite uncanny resemblance?

Hi Rabbie,

I was just teasing - I know about Lulu. I could never abide her (or Molly Weir).

All the best

I had two cousins born in Lennox Castle.. it started off as a big country house belonging to the gentry then was transformed intae a mental hospital. but became a maternity as well as asylum in the 50s and 60s.. Im no sure how long it stayed open for maternity.. never liked the place, it gave me the creeps... I had ma weans in Robroyston and Belivdere in the 60s and when they wanted tae paint the ward we were aw shunted tae Duke st for the rest of oor stay in hospital.... a hid ma last wean in Rottenrow.. before it closes..

My understanding is that it became a mental hospital after I was born!!. No comments please. I was born in 1950 and at that time it was still a "Normal" Hospital, though from what my mum says it, and its staff should have been certified years before. There is a web site about the hospital and loads of info

no it was a mental aslylum before becoming a maternity and continued to be a mental institution..

I was born in Lennox Castle in 1946. I always wondered why my mum, who lived in Royston, had me in Lennox Castle, rather than a hospital nearer to her home.
