    Yeah he was born in Davyhulme, then raised in Stretford, but his parents are from Ireland. I don't think they had been here long before he was born.

    Correct.
    He was born in Davyhulme (then Lancashire, now Greater Manchester) - which is not in the city of Manchester, but was in the township of Urmston.
    What was strange here is that the family home was in Hulme - which is in Manchester and a mile or so away from Manchester Royal Infirmary, yet his parents chose to go 8 miles away to Park Hospital, Davyhulme (now just a stones throw from the Trafford Centre) for his birth.
    After living first in Hulme and then nearby Moss Side, both of those houses / streets were bulldozed for new housing, the Morrissey's found themselves in Kings Road, Stretford, which - as pedantics and City fans will tell you - is not in Manchester, but in the borough of Trafford Council,.
