Jimmy Doyle18/07/2012Just read 2 books Heaps of trouble also Maggies Breakfast. enjoyed very much, but very sad at times in the 1950/60 when things was hard to make ends meat.
Our ma's was the backbone of the familys while the men was at work. Thank god CIE was in Inchicore. I left for the UK in 1967 22 years old and been here since.
Reason why i said i miss Inchicore when Ma & Da pass on there is no reason to go . Inchicore has very happy memories apary from school which i cant memember much of it only the Leather on the hand by the same name sake Doyle ( head ) and a sore backside from the cane. things have moved on.

JG10/10/2012Hi Jimmy,

If Dollar Doyle is your brother that would make you my Grand-Uncle. My Grandfather is Bernard who would be your oldest brother i suppose. He's 75 now and there's not a bother on him. It was his birthday last week and we got together and had a party. All our family was there, as was Christy Doyle's family, and Imelda and Monica Doyle, it was great craic. If you would like to send a massage on to my granda that'll be no problem. I can also send you some pictures of the family if you'd like also.

All the best,
