I was born in the Gorbals in 1930 went to Gorbals primary school and later to Strathbungo. By chance I came across this web and it brings back so many wonderful memories. The names of streets, shops, cinemas etc. the scraped knees from climbing the dykes behind the collosem. The nostalgia is overpowering.

I am just back from a wonderful trip to Las Vegas were I met wonderful people there from all over Glasgow, it was the North American Federation of Celtic Supporters Clubs convention. It was a week to remember talking about the Gorbals and Glasgow in the old days, we had some great sing songs all that week and the banquet on the Friday June 17th was a night to remember, looking forward to the next convention in 2007 in Las Vegas. Yours sincerely Thomas Kelly Donnelly Club Ambassador New York Celtic Supporters Club.

Other family, Aunt Cath, lived in Lawmoor St & godfather William Young was a joiner, with own business, who later moved to Rutherglen.

Jist a wee aside, it is being proposed, in Scotland, that there be a waiting period for the purchasing of kitchen knives! No kiddin' (Are we going to have The National Kitchen Knife Association to deal with?) also The "F" word was used for the first time in The Scottish Parliament.
