this is fantastic. sitting here with these details lovely memories have just flooded through my brain . absolutely brilliant. i can see myself nigh on 40 years ago in this great street.  i can now put faces to the names.houses that i went into regularily as a kid. people i delivered papers to. some of the ones i went to school with. some of the ladies who wore "shawls". two bedroomed houses with 7or 8 in them. absolute magic. mrs caulfield . she should have been made a saint. really kind woman. thank you colette dont know what work you put into this but im sure it was plenty. when i get the even numbers i will get too emotional as a lot of friends and family were on the even side and a few have since passed on.thank you

Hi .I grew up in Ardoyne and played football for local teams there on the Bone
pitches . There was a pitch called The Brickyard situated where St Gemmas SGirls School is now . There was also a cinder pitch at the old egg factory about where The Jamaica Inn is now .  I played for a team called Gracehill United from The Bone . I also played for St Gabriels from Ardoyne . There was always a great rivalry between Ardoyne and The Bone often fought out by teams at the Flax Street pitch that attracted huge crowds . The matches were played every Sunday from noon to nine thirty at night . The Bone had great football teams like Hearts , Parkview Rangers , Glendaragh , Diamond United and Prospect .
I had a friend  who was from the Bone . John Mc Geough and at 27 he started up a Judo school club called the Glenview Judo Club .  

As a kid I went to the Park Picture house on the Oldpark Road just above the Marrowbone district . There are lots of people from the bone area I knew .
There was a publication called A District Called The Bone by Michael Liggett .
It was part of a Glenravel History Project . Of you interested yopu could could contact them at The Ashton Centre , 5 Churchill Street , Belfast BT15 2BP .
 
      who run the gracehill team ? was it john barnes?. i had two brothers who i am sure played for  gracehill and also played for st. gabriels       i can remember some hearts players like joey saunders , finston mageinniss and his brother , paul hull, and one of the pavis brothers. can you name any others?

Hi - just found this site whilst browsing tonight and as a Belfast and more importantly, a BoneMan born and bred, I might be able to help you guys with some of your questions if you're still interested. I was born in Glenview Street and grew up in the Bone through the 50's, 60's and part of the 70's. I think I even have a 53rd generation copy of Michael Liggett's history on the Bone. So if anyone want to get in touch, drop me an e-mail on [email protected]

My Mother's family was from the Bone, Glenview st, I don't remember any other school other than the Sacred Heart which was directly in front of her house, you had the Hall which I believe was up in Ardilea St. At the top of Glenview at the corner of the Oldpark you had the Sacred Heart Chapel

The Brickyard separated Ardoyne from the Bone originally (all gone now). You had a football pitch on Flax st where football was played continually on the weekends from teams from all over the city. Then you had the hill with the "billiard table" at the top, which was a cinder pitch, directly across from that you had the Park Picture house. The "Bone" came from the "Marrowbone", Ballymoney streets and all the others on the other side of the Oldpark from Glenview, Adilea, Gracehill etc was never really considered the Bone  by people that lived there

I didn't know the McCabes, but my Mother probably would, Rosie and Jimmy, lived in a Scotch house (one up one down), that would be their Granny and Granda more than likely

Where does Glenard start and Finish? Questions like that can start an argument ;)

I would venture to say that Glenard starts at Brompton Park and ends at Alliance Ave, boarded by Ardoyne Road to the North and Berwick Road to the South

As for an Ak Ak gun in the Bone, don't know but can find out

Also, a never ending argument is the following"

Jamaica st wasn't the last street before heading over the Brickyard, Havana street was, depending on who you talked to either they considered it the Bone or Ardoyne, wherever their allegiances lied, I alway's considered it Ardoyne since it was in the other side of the Brickyard right after Jamaica st

I knew the Rennies well - Danny, Thomas, John and Alice as well as their mum and dad who came originally from Cork. Old man Rennie was a taxi driver for Star taxis who were based on the Crumlin Road opposite Agnes Street and beside Houston Williamson the undertakers and they were right next door to Crumlin Road Jail. The Rennies lived at 49 Mayfair Street next door to my granny who was the official 'knocker upper' for the district. She was an insomniac and people used to pay her in snuff to get them up for work in the mornings by hammering like hell on their front doors - problem was she used to have knock so hard sometimes that she woke up half the street who didn't all want to be wakened up !!

Sorry - forgot to say that in relation to the many football teams from around the Bone, I had a 2nd cousin Chris Mhoney who played for several of them including Gracehill, Hearts and Glenview.
