Quite a lot has been written about Stoker Palmer on this page. However does anyone remember, if he had a wife and Children?

Thats true. His shirts were always nice and white. The 12th parade in Belfast was never quite the same without him leading it. Although He lived just round the corner from us,As kids we didnt know if he was married or not. My dad had to reluctantly lift George many times but he said the next morning George would akways apologise. Its a shame the drink took over.

Just wondering if anyone remembers the McGawley family from Wolfhill Lane. Two of the Children were May and Henry.They went to Australia in the 1960s../quote]

Hi Rose anna. Yes I remember the McGawley's. The family caught up with our family here in Melbourne in the mid-60s. Paddy McGawley was an old friend of my father's. We lost touch and I don't know what happened to them all except young David McGawley who came to a very sad end.

Hi Elwood.Thank you for replying. Ive often wondered how the McGawleys got on. Im sure they found Australia to be vastly different from wolfhill Lane. Think maybe Henry would be around my age. What happened to David  if you don't mind me asking? Best wishes Rose anna

Ligoniel at the end of the tram lines remember having to walk up that mountain. .when you got off the tram  and started up the hill there was an old lady who used to sit outside and smoked an old white clay pipe.after a short walk up the hill there was a wee bridge and there was small brook trout in it then you came to the loney that took you up to the Horseshoe Road....after what seemed like a long hike we came to Wolf hill Road and my uncle Robert Templeton lived in #4 at the entrance to Wolfhill there was a wee stone fence with a wee Coleen and I used to call her holy socks why I don't know then across the road from the house in Fergies field there was a steel tube stuck in the ground and the sweetest water ever came out of it had to carry 6 buckets a day probably only one bucket made it home I any one interested will post some old pictures. .Fergie used to have the farm further down the road from our house
