« on: January 25, 2018, 08:16:41 PM »
Hi, I was wondering if anyone can turn up additional information(newspaper articles etc) on the deaths of a mother and daughter, Mary and Rose McElroy(may be recorded as McIlroy) aged 52 and 15 respectively.They were both killed on 31st May 1922 at their home on Old Lodge Road, Belfast.

Thanks.
Paul.

Bread Basket, thanks for taking the time to reply.Unfortunately,I don't have a FMP subscription,so when I click on the link I only get a page offering me the various membership deals on offer. Is there any other way you can let me know what the article says?

Thanks.
Paul.
