This sounds like my great grandmother "Elizabeth colton (nee Murray) but she would be over 100yrs old if it were. Wondering if it's a descendent. My maiden name is Colton and I'm trying to find a resting place of my great grandparents who lived at both 54 north queen street and 28 north queen street in 1901. I can't find certificate of death nor cemetery. I wanted to bring flowers on my visit from the U.S.  to Belfast next week. I'm replying to post (reply) #411 page 29. Sorry I'm new to this site

Haven't been on the site for a year or two but noticed the Clonard thread and thought I'd mention that the father of a mate of mine (in the mid 60s), Joseph Patrick Walsh, owned the Clonard Bar. I was living in a bedsit in Wolseley St at the time (just off University St or Ave, near Botanic ave.) Joe used to turn up on a Saturday night with a half bottle of whiskey in his pocket and off we'd go to a nurses' dance or the teachers' college up Stran or wherever there was a bit of a dance and the chance of discovering a new Cain and Abel. I also remember Eugene Greenan who worked n a carpet factory downtown. Joe knew a lot of bookies (I just remembered Paddy McCartan) so we'd spend at least one night a week at Celtic or Dunmore and if I won a few quid we'd go off to the Pig and Chicken (which I remember sort of vaguely). I was studying at the Marine Radio College on Eglantine ave close to the Lisburn Rd but jagged it in to go back to Canada (where my family had emigrated in the 50s) to get a BA in arts and parties.  I have to say that there were some pretty dissolute times back then; rather a lot of Guinness, Powers and pleasant young ladies with a bit of wit.

Knew Charlie Caldwell and family very well.  Last I heard, Clare was running a catering business.  The 2 ladies were Mary Kelly and her sister, Lizzie and I remember Lizzie Campbell.   They were all great neighbours.

Can anyone give me more details on Lizzie Campbell, Her husbands name, family etc.
Thanks

My dad lived on LUCKNOW STREET as a boy. His name TOMMY JUDGE. His mother and father's names were JAMES/JIMMY and MARGARET/PEGGY JUDGE. Sadly I don't have much more information than that. Please respond if anyone even remotely remembers anything about them.
