I used to walk home from work with 2 guys, Jimmy Irving and Jimmy Erne,
We did Fraser St, Seaforde St, that's all I can remember. Jimmy Irving lived in Sheriff St, he went to Canada with Katha.  Jimmy Erne lived in Arran St or Clyde St., I don't know what became of him but he was a fun guy, all this happened about 1949/50. If you're still about lads; get in touch.
JIMMY IRVING MARRIED MY SISTER (RIP)WAS WITH HIM BEFORE  XMAS NOW IN N.Z SINCE 1961 ...DONT KNOW WHAT  HAPPENED TO JIM ERNE  .IF U WISH SEND ME YOUR MESSAGE BY PM         AND I WILL SEND ADDRESS IN N .Z

Hi folks, could anyone tell me if in 1901 St Matthews would have come under Urban No 12 regarding weddings etc or if there is another R/C chapel over that direction.

                                                                Thanks.

Holy Rosary was the Closest or St. Anthony's at Willowfield, Cregagh Road I think apalachie I was Baptised in Holy Rosary Parents are from Vulcan Street close to St. Matthews.
 
Contact Theresa at St. Matthews via their email on the net she looked up all my stuff last year for me.

Whats going to happen to the new Short Strand now that the development company has gone bust .Maybe the people should ask for a riverside park in the mean time rather than a vacant building site

Hi Webby, I was born in Prim Street, but we lived in 19 Arran Street, for 6 years. My granny lived in 33 Arran street, she was there  until she died in 1967, so that would have been about 60 years

Hello Skye, in reply to your query about Jimmy Erne, from Arran Street, I'm nearly sure he went to Australia in the early 50's, and was best man for my cousin Joe McGuigan, from Clyde street, who went out there in 1952

Yes you're right Maisie Quinn moved in when we went to England. When we came back we lived in Lisbon street, then we got a house up at Dundonald

Anyone remember Jimmy Scott from Thompson Street. He used to be a horse trader.
