wolfie,
hate to say nazareth lodge was down the ravenhill, beside cherryvale.
nazareth house was at 352 ormeau road, ( the old home of bishop dorrian ),
later a home for the aged, infirm and infantile poor; now an apartment complex
rejoicing in the name of ' the spires '.

yes. lodge boy. 8 till 14-15. sorry it took me so long to reply, couldn't work out how to reply. did. just think of my family i suppose at times, there were 15 too 18 kids per group while i was their, i was in Bethlehem one, or at least i recall the `one` part. it is a life time and continents deep in my past.
And yes i did know they had pulled it down, i thought however that they had erected a sports center in it's place. I recall the old nun's grave yard up near the boundaries of st Aguistin's high school, dose anyone know if they left the cemetery in place?

tiss good to know. I stood grave side many a time as we lowered one of the old nun's back too earth, and unfortunately remember with clarity heading lines of kisser's made to send the old girls off with children's love i guess. cold and some what clammy, yet kissing such pure soul's (those i knew) seems apt in retrospect.
any way like i said up the lodge, and the many fond memories i have of the place. night Irish peoples.

Does anyone have any memoiries of Nazareth lodge orphanage in Belfast between the years of 1947 till 1953 please/ My name was Patrick J. Murtagh I was put into the orphanage aged 2weeks
old and left the home at 6years and 3months to live with adoptive parents.
Sadly I do not have any recollection of my time in the home other than having my ears pulled and pulled along the corridor by an Nun.
