    Skinny & Houli this is Dave Collins(Barnabas) I am technologically illiterate but did just listen/enjoyed your Fr Tom Hurley show. My connections Skinny I started at 7920 Eberhart, my folks were good pals with yours I took your sister Mary to a dance way back we hada good time. I even ran around with your cousin Johnny Wright and was in touch with your brother Mike.

Lastly share with Tommy Hurley we are probably related his father Jack and I are first Irish cousins, my father and his father’s mother were brother n sister.

  2. Hey Dave
    Great to hear from you! Sorry it took so long, we don’t check the comments very often. Anyway, of course I remember you well, drinking quarts with Jerome Hickey, me and Whalen and a crew of characters. I see Dogs once in awhile, still the handsomest veteran on the south side. Skinny ran the Dublin marathon with Father Tom Hurley last October in Ireland! Thanks for listening and please keep listening. Merry Christmas!
