McArdles TV
We didn't have a televison in 1954 and very few people did.Des Boyle was the local stockist and he had his Radio Bicycle and TV shop in Newry St.in the house where Michael Thornton now lives.
It was a pretty new invention then ,black and white pictures and loads of fuzziness on a jumping screen for the most part.
As children we would all head up to Tommy and Eli Mc Ardles drapery shop in Newry St to see it.
If Eli was there you would pass by the counter and into the back with miriads of other children.The woman must of had the patience of Job.

You had to there by 5 oclock to see Crackerjack presented by Eamon Andrews.It was game that required contestants to answer questions ,if they missed one a cabbage or broom was put into their arms,if they dropped one they were eliminated.
.Tom, Laurence, and Dessie, had the chairs, the rest all sat on the floor in the half dark mesmerised by the miricle that was television.
6 o clock came all to quickly and it was home for tea bread jam and a boiled egg and all set to listen to the radio at 6.45 and the adventures of Dan Dare Pilot of the Future.More > (0 comments)
