Sean lives in west Belfast. Has an outside catering business going, is always around Saint Gaulís club. He was on talkback radio a few months ago, seems his great uncle was in the photograph of the Ulster Covenant taken with Lord Carson.

religion wasnt at fault m8. it was people using religion as a scap goat for to go to war.
one god, 10 commandments. hardly an excuse for war !!!!

Stalin and pol Pot were not exactly religious. They helped a few people to an early grave.

chaddie,you quote stalin and pol pot as irreligious. Be careful that you dont misunderstand your own statement.
Religion is the name given to a system of believes pertaining to a transcendant realm, with its social structures, practices and moral teachings. Stalin and pol pot, only believed in " themselves"

Re: Short Strand. East Belfast Seaforde St., Sheriff and Lowry St.

My grandparents lived at 41 Sheriff St.  I lived at 59 Seaforde St. across Kilmood St., and hung out at 15 Lowry St.  My friends were Betty and Maire Burns.  Marion  and Agnes O'Neill.  Maura Stratton, Dorothy Mc Ginty, Ann Burns, Madeline Lundy, Ann Mc Glade.  The area was a slum, ghetto, but we didn't know it.  We were all in the same boat.  I left for the USA in 1957 and still cherish the fun we had especially in the summer and Sundays going out to Stormount, Ormeau Rd Park, the Pop, the Hippadrome and the Winkie.  Going the the Market on Fridays, getting a piece of ice from the fish market.  Sneaking on the bus because we had no money.  Long walks out to the country and rolling down the Mount.  If any of my old friends are still out there, I remember all of you fondly.  All the best.

Hi new to the forum

My dad was born in chemical street (willie kelly) and my mum from Clyde Steet (Mary Gargan) just seen pics of my uncle Sammy kelly and then someone chatting about my aunt Geraldine Gargan

My dad is now 80 and mum late seventies and they are delighted with all the connections I tell them about as they do not have any connection to the internet and think it is amazing
