You think you know the town you grew up in, and then you take a walk with loco historian Shay Clear…
For our latest Delgany ramble chat, we take a look at some of the historical buildings in the centre of the town, starting at Patterson’s garage and heading up the main street, to The Horse & Hound.
Naturally, being Delgany, we got stopped quite a few times along the way, for some extra ramble chats.
Among the dearly departed mentioned below, we reckon Shay was referring to Gerald Hanley when he mentioned the script-writer involved with The Blue Max (true) and Gandhi(false). In regard to the old Magee stables and so many other fine establishments on Delgany’s main street, if anyone has any pics – or further info – please do get in touch, by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hoping to catch up with the Brady family, who ran the small grocers across from Farrellys, and with the Magee family, who had their stables just beside Brady’s. Again, if anyone knows them, or how to get in contact, please do let us know. Reckon they should be represented here with a bit more detail.
In the meantime, put the kettle on.
Our latest ramble chat is particularly rambling. We’re talking over 20 minutes, folks, but, as always with Shay, worth every second…
