Hello people,
I was born in the Coombe Hospital (orignal one) on the Coombe and lived in Coombe Street in the 1950's
I attended Meath Street school until 1961
anybody lived around there at that time

welcome to rootschat,hope you still look in  now and
again as this was your only post .quite a number of my family
 came from around the coombe francis st ,dolphins barn st .

Hi Dubabroad,

My aunt was from there too, she lived in either 34 or 38 coombe street.

any chance might have known the family, either Behan or O'brien?

Hi

Seems my people lived there a bit earlier than you, dubabroad. My grandfathers first wife Mary O'brien lived in 39 Coombe Street in the late 1920's. They then moved to Prices Row, which i think is quite close to there.
They lived there until about 1940 when Mary died. His name was Joseph Behan, and he worked in C&C.

Also there in 1937 was John Drumm and Mary Drum. Do any of these names ring a bell?

Also do you remember a butchers called Hodgens on Georges Street.

Thanks for any help
