   Hello Folks

Harry Mooney who was a regular poster on this site until recently died on 24th June in New Zealand.   I thought that you should know .   He was a well known boxer in Belfast and N.Z and brother of moondog .   Condolences to all his family.

  I'm really sorry to hear that Barney. ....you did tell me but I thought that it would be better if you posted the information on this thread     is she being buried in Auckland .     It must have been a shock to everyone.  I read the article that you sent me about Harry and it would be good if you could post it on here.
