    Yeah, Patiserrie sounds like French for pastry shop. (I don't speak French)

    Voyager internet cafe when it was down on the Mall. (First internet cafe in Waterford, I think.)

    Good old Voyager. We used to hang out in there for ages because a friend worked there. Kind of used to move from Café Luna to Voyager to pass the day!

    One thing I miss is knowing the people who worked in loads of shops. You'd know so many lads and girls form school that you couldn't help but know someone in nearly every shop because of their part-time jobs. One particular success was the amount of free food we'd get in McDonald's. Pay for 6 nuggets and get food for two or three people! And McFlurrys with loads of Dairy Milk/Smarties in them when they first came out.

    I miss the Urinals in Ballybricken and the pens for the fairs. Lovely aroma off of them both....

    ....... puts me in mind of Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" & probably had a similar effect!!! ;)

    Also Doc's before it became the Post Office and The Butchers before that became Ladbrokes!

    And of course when The Cleaboy pub had pool tables!

    Correct me if Im wrong but is Ladbrokes now part of the Cleaboy pub (the area where the pool tables etc used to be). If so, why did they get rid of that part of the pub?? I remember when the pub did a fair bit of business. The auld fella behind the bar with the glasses would serve anyone irregardless of age!

    the food wasn't selling like it used to and business was way down so they made the place smaller, better atmosphere and easier and cheaper to run.

    Ladbrokes isn't afiliated with the pub at all.

    Did they stop doing food there?

    I used to meet Mrs Ziedth on there for lunch when I was in college and it was great value for money? Pity.

    Yeah Ladbrokes are now in the area of The Cleaboy where the pool tables used to be! It's probably a better pub now cos it seemed too empty when full size and not many in there. Miss the carvery up there tho!

    That guy with the glasses was Pat Moran, he used to be a bookie out in Kilcohan Park too (he may still be I'm not sure) but he would drive you mental when serving up there. Stand staring at the aertel for about 20 minutes looking for Lotto numbers and blatantly ignoring you when you wanted a drink!

    The pool tables are gone from there for years.

    Quarter of sweets in the shop. Like cough drops, pear drops etc.

    That youthful innocence when children could spend all up to midnight day playing safely in the neighbourhood without their parents having to keep a close eye on them. Society has been thrown away.

    absolutely, i remember me & my mates used to walk into town every evening into sullys 12/13 yrs of age jesus i wouldnt let my kids do anything like that now


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8 stickysten


    hanging around up in the old chipboard factory with all the lads during the school holidays, then the neighbours calling the cops even thou we were doing nothing & getting a chase off the guards......jesus thinking of it now that place was a death trap no wonder they rang them

    Aye, we used to call it "The Gloss". There was a chap called Ray Halligan who ran the change cage in the middle of the floor.

    Anyone remember a dingy little shop down John Street called RP Games? quite a bizarre bunch of people ran it.
