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.

Who remembers Billy's Weekly Liar?

Re: top newspaper

Dabbler / Joe
I remember Billy,s weekly liar, I associate it somehow with the trick shop in Smithfield, Belfast ( Another forum subject ? ), beside the Pet shop. Is it possible it was sold there?
Who remembers the Record shop also there ? we used to travel from Lisburn and stand outside on Saturday afternoon, listening to the newest hits, ( Connie Francis, Pat Boon etc etc )
Another memory is the Plazza in Chichester St. ,the hop at lunchtime, a Tanner entrance , office girls and girls from the surrounding factories, some with pouse in their hair jiving to Bill Hayley and the Comets records and us boys from Day release at the "big Tech" beside the Black Man, on our Lunchbreak, trying to " Click"! Oh to be young again!

Happy Paddy,s Day everybody!
