Lisburn Exiles Forum

(Site is no longer operational pending a major long overdue overhaul of the entire website. Thank you for your patience. Site should still be visible and searchable for old posts.)

The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

Re: Re: Making a slide

Hi Terry,

I remember "Archie's Bus", in fact he used it in a skit at the Kings Hall during a "Skating show", he played a clown in that. Both Raymond and Percy were both excellent skaters, and played hockey for Balmoral Wasps at that time. Incidentally Mary Ginesi of the famous Ginesi's of Lisburn,also appeared in that skating show.
