        My mother was born in Portland Row. Thankfully was not to close when the bombs were dropped on the North Strand. Wallaces depot was at the back of these houses and rose growers were delighted to collect the dung from the horses powering the coal carts.

      The fight was at 6am; not surprising people were in their night wear.

    Portland Row is an Olympian street. Skibbereen is an Olympian village. It changes the history of big and small places. Rejoice.
