One thought on “Robin, Peter, Eoin, Netta & Caroline”

  1. Robin and I worked at Royal Hibernian in Dublin in summer of 1961 and spent next 12 months very close until I went to London. I met Robin again in 1969 when he and Kay were together before they married. It was a great shock when I learnt he had died too early, from my brother Seamus, who worked with him at UCD. Seamus is also now gone, and I, at 75, same as Robin would have been, am now living the dream in Spain. I remember well my couple of visits to Skryne, particularly Mrs Hickey?s hospitality close to Christmas 1961 when she collected me and Robin from Dublin and she offered me sherry (As a good Catholic, I didn?t drink!) and stayed overnight. Memories still as fresh.
