Here is a picture of from left - Frances McGarvey, Jackie Lockhart and Marie Kerr. It was taken on Main Street, Emyvale a week or so ago. Jackie is from Scotland and is now 80 years of age but when he was 10, 11, and 12 years of age he was sent to Emyvale on his holidays. He stayed with the Hughes family who then lived on Main Street, His family were relations of the Hughes family. The Hughes house was on Main Street where Dermot McMahon’s shop and bungalow now stand. They moved to Oriel Park when it first opened. However Jackie visited Emyvale again when he was 16 but could not see anyone he knew and left. All his life he hoped to one day pay another visit to Emyvale as he still held many great memories in his mind of his time here and so he arrived unannounced last week. He was put in touch with nancy McCluskey who put me in touch and I met him at the Leisure Centre and we sat and chatted with him reaclling the houses and the people who lived in them. he could not but notice the huge changes since his time here before. He remembered names of boys he spent his time with and lovely memories of the Hughes family, Big John was a Postman and Mrs. Hughes was a very friendly woman and treated him like a king. The whole family made him feel very welcome and was the main reason he kept wanting to come back. Marie, whom he remembered, and Frances then arrived in to Nancy’s and we met up with them and I left him with them to continue his memories. I really enjoyed my time with him and I hope he enjoyed his return visit to Emyvale.
