I lived in the Plunkett end of O Higgins Tce No 9
Who lived where ?
We lived in Plunkett Qrs. during mid. 5os to early 60s. Our neighbour was the well known Jimmy (Corky) Walsh. All that was a long time ago and as such it is reasonable to suspect that with the demise of Plunkett M.Qrs. etc. nobody remembers us. We can be contacted at Deecdeecon@aol.com.

My family lived in Ceannt originally (before I was born). We lived in 22 O'Higgins Rd first then in 30 O'Higgins Tce. I always thought we had a big house until I revisted the Curragh to discover how small it was. Wondered how Billy & May reared such a big family there. When in 22 O'Higgins Rd, we had an extra bedroom which originally belonged to No 23. We had great neighbours and a great life on the curragh. Jim Noone is my cousin and we had great times at his house at Fire Station.

Hi All. I was born in Curr camp in 1954 and lived there until 1972 when we moved to Shannon. I have the fondest memories of my childhood, we may not have had much but at least we all had the same, great friends and all the freedom we wanted. Our neighbours were, McBride's, Connors, Henley's, thingylans, Caffreys and many more. wonderful memories. Thank you xx.

Sorry Willie, No we are the other O'Shea's, we lived next door to Breda & Frank for years in McDonagh, they then moved to O'Higgins Tce then to Newbridge. My mam sees them every now and again, Breda is in hospital at moment but Frank is well. Cheers
