Does anyone remember a family called Neely or Flanaghan from 2 or 4 Nore Street? Early 1940s. Alex Neely and Molly Neely!

Not according to the relevant street directory entries for Nore Street on the Lennon Wylie website ...

1939
2. Christie, J., labourer
4. Haddock, Joseph

1943
2. Christie, J., labourer
4. Haddock, Joseph

1951
2. Christie, J., labourer
4. Haddock, S.

https://www.lennonwylie.co.uk/index.htm

However there were the following entries for no. 1 Nore Street:

1939: Neely, A., foreman labourer
1943: Neely, Mrs. Mary
1951: Neilly, Mrs. Mary

According to the following burial records, Alexander Neilly of 1 Nore Street died in 1941 (reported age 74) and was buried in Grave E1 180 at Belfast City Cemetery. In the same grave are Mary Elizabeth Neilly of 1 Nore Street who died in 1950 (reported age 67), also John Neilly of 67 Shannon Street who died in 1961 (reported age 83) and William Flanagan of 2 Suir Street who died in 1947 (reported age 29)... are these the folk you mean?

Indication below that Mary was a McKelvey:



This looks like the marriage of Alexander Neilly and Mary McKelvey in Agnes St. Presbyterian Church Belfast in 1915, Alexander was a widower:

For the moment I'm wondering if Mary's age in that burial record was understated and whether she was in fact the daughter baptised for Robert McKelvey and Jane Wilson in Christchurch Church of Ireland, Belfast, in 1869.  The same couple had a son Hugh baptised in 1863 in County Cavan, their address then was the townland of Galbolie in the civil parish of Bailieborough:

It looks like William Flanagan in the previously posted burial record was the son born in 1918 to William senior and Jeannie Neilly (note the address '67 Shannon Street' in the following):

William senior and Jeannie were married the previous year:
