It must be my sister Cathy’s first communion. I look like I’m maybe 2, max. That’s my brother Ed, me, Sharon, and Cathy. You can probably identify mum and dad. It’s a world away from Stepney and Monaghan.
Mum and Dad came over on HMS Georgic, a year apart. They both passed through Pier 21. About 50 years later, Lennie Gallant asked me to help write a song for the dedication of Pier 21 as a national monument.
