Hello
I am trying to trace the Kellys at Ardpatrick Gardens, I think they are related to me and I am doing some family history.
Did they live at 28 Ardpatrick Gardens and was their father Michael Kelly?
I am a daughter of Michaels first cousin so I would be their second cousins. Anyone know how I might get in touch with the Greg mentioned on this forum?

Thanks

Was reading an article about Irish speakers in East Belfast and came across the Morton Family. The Mortons, an Irish speaking Catholic family lived in No 3 Clara St until 1955. The father, Richard Morton was a teacher at St Malachy's Christian Brothers Primary in Oxford St. He was highly respected in the area as he helped local people with literacy problems to fill out various official forms.

Richard was self - taught in Irish and he married Brid Mic Dhiarmada (Bridget McDermott), who was a native speaker from the Glenties in Donegal. They reared their children entirely through Irish. No effort was made to hide this from their neighbours in Protestant East Belfast. Richard was very proud of the language and always called the children in for dinner in Irish.

At that time only three or four families spoke Irish at home in Belfast. Few local Protestants knew the Irish language even existed. The children of Richard and Grid were Antaine, Diarmaid, Bridgín, Máire Róisín and Áine. I wonder if Áine Morton was my P1 teacher in St Anthony's back in the day ?

went to watch Cliftonville play glentoran today. just wanted to ask if anyone still supports glentoran after being put out of the east. I did support the glens until the raise of the red army late 70s. by the way the reds won 1 nil.

Yes Tony, sorry only replying to this now, but we had a great crowd in the church on the night and the choir were in full voice helped along by the new sound system recently installed.

We had quite a lot of newspaper cuttings, early plans and photographs of the church and parishioners from earlier years which got a lot of interest, especially from visitors who didn’t know the history.  At the refreshments afterwards, served in the old girls school at the bottom of The Crescent, lots of people (including myself) met up with old friends and classmates.

I see you are still able to go to a “footie” match so hope you are keeping ok. :)
