The only Walsh family that I knew on the Falls, came from Bow Street.

just spoke to my friend and bow street was just down the rd from where her mum ws living, i dont suppose you would know what happend to them? he would be about 40 now, did they call him nipper because he was short? as my friends mum says the john she knew was short, sorry for all the questions, but my friend wants to know her roots as this is her father
thanks again

Kimmy this is a tough one, if someone on the forum gives you info leading to John Walsh the question is does he know he's a dad? It can cause a huge amount of problems for families if this news is a bolt from the blue. I think your friend should discuss this with her mother and the best approach to take to avoid heartache and possible rejection :)

The Walsh family are still in Belfast and England
I must add kimmy that I do think Belle's post makes a lot of sense.

Hi thanks for your replys, as far as she's aware he knew her mum was pregnant, but she only has her mums side so maybe he didnt know, ive told her she cant go rushing in etc he may have a family etc and she said she wouldnt do that, she just wants to know, which im sure is natural, ive never been in this situation so i can only guess, if he knew about her and doesnt want anything to do with her i wouldnt give her any info as i would want to protect her aswell, thank  you all for your help
