allymac there is one.
A photo taken outside with a milk cart in front of it, it shows Greencastle chapel clearly, because Graymount wasn't built then,but there isn't much of the hotel to be seen.
Its in Greencastle and its surrounding area or Tramcars and jamjars.
If I find it I will post it for you.

I'll love to see what that hotel looked like in its hay day.

Hello M,I saw the photo you mentioned but I would love to see one of the whole building.Apparently an old well has been unearthed on the site and the council are to send someone out to examine it.Must have been covered over for years and forgotten about.

There was another hotel with the same name in Cornmarket at one time.

Hello allymac.
Years ago there was digging at the back of the Hotel.
Remains of an old building were found. Rite Ward the then J.P in the area tried to have it looked into, but nothing came of it.
I sure would be interested in any thing they would come up with now.
If you here any more of it please let me know.

The Donegall Arms was great. My da' took me there on a Saturday when he needed a pint. There was an old tram & a weeping willow tree in the garden at the side of it where they wash cars now. Tram was great to play on. The pub later became the 'Telstar', then the 'Tudor Lodge'.

McGurggle, you have made my day I have been trying to remember what you called the pub before it was the Tudor, thanks for that.
