« on: September 02, 2008, 06:58:07 AM »
we all come from the same place,my name is bobby maitland from ballyhackamore
why we left belfast is immaterial,the thing is to remember why you left and why you want to keep in touch,my reason is better opertunities elsewhere.Before we go any further i am on belfast forum as maitland dont ask.We are all here to help
each other as life is short and memories are nice but expensive for our children
but with friends on this website they can be a lot cheaper so help if you can others seeking

Hi Maitland. I left Belfast because I needed a change of scene. I was studying Music at Queen's so I just transferred to Cardiff. My eldest sister was living in Swansea but they didn't have a music department. Ironically, the same year I came to Cardiff her husband got a new job and they moved to Cheshire! I don't regret it; I feel like I've lived here all my life, but I still love where I came from. I'd never go back, though; this is home now, after twenty-six years. :)

Hi Maitland.  Have ou heard the saying,'he's got a head like a Ballyhackamore bailiff?' My Dad used to say it. :)
