LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
A BIRTHDAY SPOILED!
I was reading your article in the Douglas Weekly when I came across the story of the lady whose birthday was spoiled. I would like to offer her and her daughter, dinner as a guest of the Bohemian Restaurant and I have enclosed a voucher for same.
Kenoz W. Hanna, Bohemian Restaurant, Douglas.
HOME FROM AUSTRIALIA
I lived for a while at Palace Ann Lawn before leaving for Australia in 1970. I've only just found your page but please keep it going it's great to read your local news.
I've read all about the crows from the tip and have many memories of the trouble they caused years ago. I remember working during summer holidays at the nuts and bolts factory, I wonder if it's still there. I have family living in Carrigaline so I've been looking through all your photos to see if you have them there.
Thanks and bye for now.
