By this time many of the town’s modern public housing estates had been built and many were rehoused to The Meadow, Dromalane, Derrybeg Park, Courtenay Hill, Hennessy Park and Barcroft Park. Others moved into Linenhall Square to take their place. Still others moved within Linenhall Square, such as Dickie Rodgers, now living in Church Street.

The Linnie’s were soon to move to Derrybeg Drive in The Meadow.

My mate, Willy Reilly, now of Kirkwall in Scotland, is descended from the residents of Number 52.

Michael Long was uncle to my childhood friend and reader of Journal, Paul McConville.

Marie Rowe, contributor here, was married into the Rowes, the family of Number 62.

There are Loyes in my family background. I do not know whether those of 66 were/are distant relations!

We would be grateful to anyone wishing to add further interesting snippets of information about all these people.
