Windermere St

Tony and Catherine Corry came to Leicester in 1970. Tony was from Mullagh, Co. Clare and Catherine from Aughrim, Co. Galway. Tony worked on the railways and they came to Leicester because the houses were cheaper.

They lived on Windermere St. Tony's brother George, lived on Gotham St.
