McShanes/Turleys in 1950s

The photograph below was contributed.  It depicts a few of the earliest families in the Meadow of the 1950s.

The three pretty girls to the front are from left:

Eileen McShane, Dorothy Turley and Marie Turley who lived next door to one another in the first houses of Slieve Gullion Road.

Terry Turley (behind) still lives here and can often be seen in McDonnell’s Bar (the First and Last). 

Donny O’Hare is peeping out behind and to Terry’s left.  Bobby Rocks is to Marie’s left and by his side, peeping out too is (I believe) Larry McGuigan (the dancer) whose home on Orior Road backed onto these.

Out on his own is a young Terry McShane.

That motor bike would have been a much-prized possession in those days.  We do not know who owned it.  I have a vague recollection … was it Terry’s ?  What make is it?
