    She had a son, Noelie Cauldwell in the army, with the 6th Bn

    and she was a great character, always willing to have a chat while she worked.

    Saw a couple of washing machines in Cavan a while back. Dunno how more expansive the
    laundry system up there is, apart from that

    Am told that Athlone has improved no end in this regard (laundry facilities)

    Cavan does, Glen does, CBB does, Clonmel does, McKee does [ at least the last time I needed to use them they were there ]

    there was no laundry facilaties in finner cmp in the 70s ya had to wash everything yourself
    or throw your clothes in your car and drive to the laundry.

    What good is in youth when it's ageing what joy are in eyes that cant see when there's sorrow in sunshine and flowers and only our rivers run free.
