    I miss going to the 'dogs' (the greyhound track) on a saturday night and buying seets from the little sweet shop down stairs and putting on 50p bets at the tote upstairs

    Also miss Club LA.

    Crazy prices was way better than tesco aswell.

    Also there used to be a clothes shop/toy shop where Heatons now is in Lisduggan shopping centre ..anyone remember the name of it?

    Decent blaas, the quality of blaas is terrible nowadays, i suppose its because most of the local bakerys have closed down.


  • Registered Users Posts: 292 ✭✭ babystrawberry


    The Green Bank Swiss Rolls .... they were tasty! Got one on Sundays for the tea on Sunday evening!:D

    Thats on Cannon Street. It only closed in the last year or two iirc, I sometimes got something in there on the walk home from work up till about 2007/08. He'd close about 6pm though so I suppose he mostly made his money from the school trade.

    Hickeys blaas are alright but they're not a patch on Walshs crusty blaas tbh, they're a terrible loss.

    Vanilla slices from Leahy's were great too.

    There was a shop on Barrack St that sold nice jam tart things with strips of pastry on the top.

    I think it was Belgians that ran it.

    I'm only 18 (19 April) But I miss the days of exploring and biking around the woods in Abbey Park. Infact, I miss almost everything about Abbey Park. I wouldn't know the place if I went up there now. :(

    what was it called, an Siopa Beag? the stuff they had to put up with ( but were oblivious to) was unreal :D

    anyone remember Kitty Gores on Wilkins Street? Selling single fags, a match & a bit of sand paper to light it off to the teenagers in De La Salle....jaysus the 80s were great

    Yeah Siopa Beag..what went on in there was mental..pure riot with the two old ladies behind the counter trying to contain it..fellas robbin stuff, spittin in over the counter till it got too much then one of them used to come running out from behind the counter with the sweepin brush and everyone scattered. All the sweets and chocs used to be out of date.

    Remember Kittys too..she used to stand beside you in her dressing gown and slippers when you were at the counter and hold yer arm in case ye ran without paying..as if she had any hope off holding you!...while her husband would serve you behind the bars on the counter. Never any problem handing out 20 major to a 12 year old!..ye gotta love the 80's!
