Memories of Carrickhill

 

Hi Folks

Complete amateur at PCs. Anyway here goes, We lived in Unity St. My Dad drove a horse cab and jaunting car .We also kept other animals; goats, chicken etc,. I used to gather skins with a pony and cart,. The pony's name was Blondie, who was one of the last of a now extinct breed of Cushendall ponies. A few of the shop names from the area that I remember are: Micky Mc Cabe's (Butcher), Coyllers (Grocers who slaughtered and prepared their own pigs on site.), Billy Kingsmores(chippy), Mrs. Passmore (pigsfeet and elder), Toughers pawn. How about a few local pubs names, anyone remember some?
Great site and memories..keep up the good work and keep the stories coming.
