Hi, I am Ian Connolly, formerly of 25 Cutler Cresent and 107 Cutler Lane, Stacksteads. I emigrated to Australia in 1967 with my Parents, Frank and Betty Connolly, and my 3 brothers, John, Les and Malcolm. Over the years I have lost touch with my relatives and friends....no excuses, just the way it is.... I have not been back since I left, but intend making the trip next year, probably in your Autumn, and hope finally to catch up with old friends and relatives. The mates I remember most would be Allan Swift (Rev Father now...) of Swifts Farm, Cutler Greens and Keith Marsden and William O'Reilly who both lived on Cutler Lane. I attended St.Josephs R.C primary school at Huttock End Lane until 1966 (where I had a great "crush" on a girl by the name of Karen Costello.....), then went to what was then called St.Ambrose Secondary Modern. I was only there for a few months prior to emigrating. I also have plenty of relatives still living in Bacup area. If any of my old mates or relatives read this, it would be great to hear from them, and perhaps re-open communications after all this time. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org My home address is: 14/ 28-30 Hampton Court Road, Carlton, NSW, Australia, 2218. Best Regards, Ian Connolly.
