do you remember first aiders, Mrs Mulvanney (not sure about the spelling) from Rosnareen or Mrs Mc Ardle from Navan Green? Sometime around '71-'73

Trawling through my addled brain I remember that Oona was one of your cousins. Trying desperately to drag up other names.

Anybody out there have any further info on Phil Kinnaird, an internee on the Al Rawdah in 1940?


Not that common a name, so just offering up these possibilities:

- Philip Kinnaird of 41 Etna Drive gets a mention in newspapers of November 1939;
- Philip Kinnaird of Conway Street gets a mention in newspapers of July 1932, described as being married to a protestant woman.

There was the following Kinnaird presence in Conway Street according to the 1932 street directory on the Lennon Wylie website:
60. Kinnaird, Mrs.

Also this entry in 1924 for Conway Street which may be Kinnaird misheard / mistranscribed:
60. Kincaid, John, crane driver

GRONI shows a Belfast registered marriage taking place on 13 May 1932 between a Philip 'Kinniard' and Isabella Braiden, which seems to read across to this family tree (warning: can't stand by accuracy):
http://www.kinnaird.net/family57.htm

There was a son (possibly Philip?) born in 1908 to Joseph Kinnaird and Mary Newell ...

... although the parent's marriage shows Margaret Newell:

The 1911 census shows a Joseph and Sarah Kinaird with a 2 year old son Philip:

As I said, just possibilities.

Morning all, I hope you're all well  :-**

Liz, Bobby said it's supposed to be nice tomorrow so he will finish the outside lights then, I hope he's right, it's very cold this morning but there is a wee bit of sunshine trying to get through.  :-\

I'll have to get started on my overseas  Christmas Cards, I try to get them done before the 1st of December.

Jean, I hope your eye clears up soon, it can be very annoying.

FIFA would never allow two seperate entites/countrys to form a team to compete in competition ... thats like allowing Mexico and Spain to converge because they speak the same language  ;)

Yes I knew Brendan very well, his older brother Patsy and younger brother Francis. The McKeowns lived in No 20 but were older than me and very quiet people.


Hi Wanderer
The McKeown's were my cousins. As regards  the 'Rogers' it was actually Patsy not Brendan [I was thinking about Celtic manager obviously when I was typing] who was in my class at St. Mary's Barrack Street probably around 1963/64.

A request for Mary Lennon, please. Can you find anything on a Philip Kinnaird in Ardoyne, early 1940s? Thank you
