Henry Kane was a great friend of my father back in the 50's.

Thanks for all the replies. Much appreciated.

He used to camp around beechmount. He was a wagon builder, he knew Henry Kane and the Murdoch's. He was a carpenter by trade. He was killed in 1953, in Musgrave police station. A man named Billy Platt used to stay in the camp every now and hi again.

The donohue's were a big traveller family that stayed around Belfast areas during the 50's and 60's.
the man that was killed in police station was my mothers father John Donohue rip She would love to no who are you
