Hi again Jilly. Thanks for taking the time to confirm that for me. It means a lot. Jennifer and I had all the arrangements made to emigrate to Australia, but I was a bit of a two-timer and had another girlfriend to whom I decided to get engaged, and eventually marry, happily-ever-after.
Jennifer did emigrate and that was the last I ever heard of her.
Waringstown always reminds me of my magical romance.

Well Garnier you obviously made the right choice in the end.

However,the lovely memories you still hold fast regarding Jennifer are indeed a beautiful compliment to her.

We all look back to our `salad days`and that one `special person`and the magic is still with us.
I have no doubt Jennifer has also looked back and remembered you and Waringstown.

To my mind, good memories from when I was young and carefree are well worth re-visiting!!
I often wonder where all those girls and boys are now and how did life work out for them.

Hi jillyfred, Yes, they were the 'good old, bad old days'.
Having left one girl off home and booting down to Waringstown at about 10 pm brings back fond memories of my mad youth.
My biggest puzzle about the so called troubles was what unearthed so many males to get involved with the paramilitaries, commit some awful atrocity, get caught and end up in jail when they could have been out dating beautiful girls.

Mc Keown shot up to 6 times.
9 bullets fired.
Somebody making sure he never breathed again.
I hope he repents at the Pearly gates.

Therein lies a question, Garnier.

I've never heard of too many paramilitaries who were recruited to the cause in their twenties, much less after.

It's especially sad to hear that gangland murder has darkened the door of a quiet little village which the locals love and value.
