Do you recognise any of these guys in their St. Kevins blazers ?
Can you shed any light as to who they are yourself?

Muffins delicatessan beside frank clarkes an fenelons butchers
Quinlans electrical opp Evans selling state of the art Betamax videos
Also remember insurance brokers next door because the woman working in it was a stunner and had the best legs I had ever seen as a fourteen year old still can see them now.
Watching the girls from top of the shelters on south beach then watching them swimming at the men's bathing
John flynns shop at the cinema
Robbing frank loves shop
The stables, the pool hall
Great days

Great discussion. I'm enjoying this. Yes I remember that Rubix cube race - the winner got a homework-free day from Master Barry.
Another memory from CBS, was when a fight broke out in the "field", we'd all chant out "AG, AGR, AGRO-aggro" - or am I imagining that? It doesn't seem to work, because I (now) realize that there are two Gs in aggro!

Anybody remember the cubs and scouts trip to Germany. 1982 - I think.

Anybody remember a guy called Chris Wilson - I think that's the name. From England. He took his mother's silver serving tray to the golf club the time of the snow and it was the express route to the bottom. Couldn't stop. I heard a rumour that he rode his bike along the harbour wall (the top!) - but I did not see that myself.

Cabanas, Woodlands bar, Bitz and the Stables - what a loss! Excellent memories.

One or two people have mentioned that would like to see old photos. G'stones has to be one of the best documented towns in Ireland thanks to Derek Paine's books. There are seven of them - Mrs. Mooney (Trafalgar Rd.) might still have the most recent. The library certainly has some which can be consulted there (probably not for borrowing). If anybody is very interested in these books I can get back to you with the ISBNs and exact titles etc so you can try to purchase them via ebay etc.
Another must-read is Peter McNiff's 'Stories from a small town' - very nice collection of mini-biographies of older Greystonians.
I remember the scout trip to jägersburg in Germany in 1982 it was a great trip

(Not sure about the etiquette of lifting the photos and posting them here, so here's the link instead)

As the thread is 37 pages, I'm not sure if anyone has posted this link to a Flickr group with photos of Greystones through the 50s and 60s

slideshow is particularly good
