Re: Kitty molloys

Morning all,

My Uncle Paddy used to bring us a handful of large "pokes" home with him, from Kitty Molloy,s', when I stayed with my cousins in Barrack St.

We used to watch from a skylight for him coming home with the tissue wrapped "Pokes" in his hand, & the raspberry or strawberry topper beginning to melt down the sides.

Funny enough, I am not a lover of ice-cream, never was, even in those days, I would have preferred a Raspberry Ruffle any day.

BUT we throughly enjoyed ourselves, seeing who could have the last lick of that delicious Poke, which I can taste yet.

Thanks for the memories, Uncle Paddy. May he rest in peace.
