This is Lucan Village around 1970, I think.
It was when we had two-way traffic along by the Griffeen!
When Permanent TSB was Mr. Sharkey’s Drapery Shop!
When a petrol pump stood on the road outside it!
When the only cars to be seen were a Morris Minor, a VW Beetle, and two Ford Anglias – the black one on the right might have belonged to Mr. Toolan who owned a grocery shop along here.
It was before Bob Carroll’s Pub (now Courtneys) got a thatched roof.
It was before AIB Bank got their first new building – the old two-storey build can just about be made out at the top of the street.
- Does anyone remember which year the Kangaroo burned down – it was on Easter Sunday morning – was it 1966 or ’67?
- Does anyone remember which year the old bank building (Royal Bank of Ireland) was knocked down and the ‘new’ single storey AIB built?
Does anyone have a picture of Har Farrell and his horse, Blossom?
