My maternal grandmother, Ginny McCormick, was a midwife and she delivered Ruby Murray.

Justice for all the innocent/ unarmed People who were
Gunned down by the British Soldiers,
For no other reason then their religion,were murdered.

That takes me back Ali.  She was a great gentle singer - there was a documentary on TV a few years ago dedicated to her.  She was a modest person and the the showbiz glitz and glamour made her nervous - apparently she took a drink to calm the nerves but eventually developed a problem which effected her health - she died of liver cancer.

Another Belfast singer who made the big time during the same era was Ronnie Carroll - he was Ronnie Cleghorn from Roslyn Street in East Belfast - I was born about 100 yards away in Roseberry Road - my Mum was a big fan and used to buy all of his records.
