Last time we had a significant fall of snow in Holyhead was 28th December 2000. I remember cos I built an 8 foot tall snowman in the garden and all the Llaingoch kids came to see it!

Ps. Someone told me last week that a plane carrying 1980's Japanese car parts exploded somewhere over the Irish Sea. Derek Brockway did warn that it would be "raining Datsun Cogs" at the weekend....

time to go I think

This is my first posting as I've only just found this Forum - and duw it's done me no end of good!  :)
Being an ex-pat of some forty years or more with only the occasional return to what I still think of as "home" it's very soothing on the old hiraeth. In my minds eye I could follow exactly Bolsachian's morning walk yeah.

BT are digging a hole outside the scout hall (Sam Cahn's Yard to the older readers)

Now would that be the same Sam Cahn as in my nain's ditty about:
Sam Cahn the dirty old man
Washed his face in a frying pan
Combed his hair with the leg of a chair
Sam Cahn the dirty old man...?

And in an earlier post you mentioned the tipping of a three piece suite [or similar] into Bol Sach. Did it join what remained of the front end of a World War 2 MTB that still graced the foreshore forty years after the end of hostilities?

Keep up the sit reps yeah. Tarrafunow.

In Morawelon things are quiet.

No boy racers zooming through the streets or chavs drinking cider...perhaps there getting their school uniform ready for tomorrow.

The gritting truck has been around most of the busiest roads and there are no ferries in the dock

Sorry to be pedantic: It's not 'Black Bridge' - that refers to a wooden structure demolished years ago.


Hahaha- Dare you to argue with the people who still call it that. That's  one of the points of the Holyheadianism thread - People still refer to places, people, structure by the names given years ago, or by names of landmarks long gone. Ther's no cattle yard there any more, but it's not called much else from all I can gather.

Today was one of the safest ever days for people in Holyhead.

It was so cold that everybody had their hands in their own pockets.....

Yeah - gone the way of the sheerlegs down by Pelhamyeah.  But I'm with Renee here  Black Bridge is Black Bridge. Is nothing sacred in this ever so progressive world? After all I understand from this forum that The Fusileer is now the 79 - which it was before it was the The Fusileer...if you follow my drift.

Quote from: Detective
The abbottoir story is interesting. When I was a kid they still had the cattle yard in Kingsland (somewhere near McDonalds)


Is that not where the abbatoir was then? Anyway  the waste matter [to put it delicately] ran off into a stangant pond between the end of the cattleyard and the bottom of Kingsland Hill [just up the road from the Forresters]. The joke is the pond was filled in and built on - the bungalow being sold I think to an unsuspecting "outsider". [No one here I hope]
