Darby O'Gill in west Belfast.

Darby O'Gill mural in west Belfast

One of my favourate oldie movies is Darby O'Gill and the little people. Albert Sharpe who played Darby O'Gill came from Belfast and two new murals have emerged in west Belfast's Iveagh district, in testamony to this fact. It is rumoured that Sharpe came from Iveagh, though I don't know for sure. We used to go see him in the old Broadway picture house.

Afterwards we used to go to a shop called Tramona for a glass of 'attaboy' lemonade that cost tuppence.  Real fun!!
