Does anyone remember Our Lady's hall at the bottom end of Laird street being used as a church because the real church of Our Lady's church had been bombed out.

I'm talking about the early fifties. After that it was used more like a church hall before it became the social club possible in early sixties. They used to hold bingo nights and jumble sales etc.

Can't help on that but I remember going there whilst Our Lady's Church was being repaired after bomb damage. I believe the roof was blown off and fell back down again the wrong way round. There was also a building( a school?)next door that was very badly damaged. I think my mother and her sisters and brother went to that school.

Remember Our Lady's being reopened with great fanfare. I kick with the other foot so didn't actually go in there. Went in once with my Catholic mates but legged it when it came to the Holy Water bit. Went to a wedding where half the guests were bevvied, one forgot to take the rice out of the bag and fetched the bride one on the ear with half a pound of best rissoto rice, knocked her veil and head gear skew whiff. Lots of sympathy from the watching rabble. Still see her now and again, cracking lass and still got the same hubby, brilliant.

It must have still looked like that in late 70s as that is a very familiar view to me.

Looks like that area.
Look how clean the streets are!
That's because there's no dolies around spewing their dirty nappies and rubbish everywhere like we have today. Everyone worked for a living back then, these days women just churn kid after kid out and live off the dole house.
Makes me sick.
