Does anyone know the history of the National Club that was in Berry Street in Belfast?  I am intersted in the founders including my grandfather Willamen James Mc Laughlin.

Hello jd,

When was your grandfather born and when did he die?
That would give us a rough idea when the National Club was founded.

The National Club is in different premises in 15 Queen street.  My grandparents were life members.  When it was in berry street  I can still remember my granda letting me sip his beer.  yum yum. :)

Give them a buzz on 028 90246851.  I also know that the Andersonstown News ran an article about them years ago. http://www.irelandclick.com

My grandfather was born 1875, so I reckon that the club was started around 1900.  I have asked at the club and I was told that with the change of location a lot of the history details were lost.
