Hi Mageeka
John O'Rawe's nephew is Father Danny Martin O'Rawe from Riverdale in Andytown.  He's not a priest anymore and has a wife and Family now.  Is this the same person as your Father Don?

No Lil
The Don O'Rawe I went around with as a boy is I believe in the Chapel of Poleglass
He had an older brother named Liam RIP who was also a friend of mine  As a matter of fact I am hoping to have a re union with the old gang in February and Fr, Don is supposed to be joining us
I do know that the family came from Derby St and their Dad worked in Havelins in Smithfield  He was a master locksmith

Yes I remember the Marleys from wee Mcdonnell st because I am one of them. I am the youngest member of the family. I can obviously answer any questions about them. I am Desmond (Dessie) Sadly Joe has passed away as has Bridie. Johns ladder did not slide it was because John himself that slipped. Thomas lives in Morecambe England James lives in Canada and I now reside in California U S A

Hi In the mid 60s there was a Gerald Matthews that lived in number 66 Albert Street who was a driver. He might have been a bus driver I think. As far I I remember the family had two children a boy and a girl.  Sorry don't recall their names.
Before you laugh at someone else, have a look in the mirror.
