Gandi, I wonder sometimes do people do this because they can't express themselves? Or do they feel this is the only way to get 'authority' to listen to them? Are these are actions of people who feel disenfranchised?

I wonder if someone ask them why they feel this way would it get better?

:( :( :( It's horrible. In the 21 century this rubbish goes on.


Unfortunately Belle, the 21st century seems just as bad in this respect as every century before it. The availability of social media also amplifies the ability of the thug, the bully, the racist, the sexist and the downright almost functionally illiterate to spew their hatred and narrow-minded venom locally and globally.

Belfast Genealogy / Ballynafeith Home
« Last post by C E Murphy on Today at 10:10:30 AM »
Okay....I have my gt uncle John James Farrells WW1 and 2 service records and he lists his next of kin as mother Elizabeth Farrell 12 Broadway, Falls Road Belfast which was easy enough to find on google maps and then his two brothers Fred and Edward who's address is given as Ballynafeith Home, Belfast.  Fred was born 1893 in Cheshire and Edward was born 1896 also in Cheshire. (Dad was originally in the 5th Dragoon Guards and was stationed in Aldershot before taking a job with Cheshire Police). So what or where is Ballynafeith Home?  Since John joined the army at the age of 14 in 1904, I assume he gave these details at the time of his attestation it would mean Edward was 7 and Fred would have been 10.  Does anyone have any idea where or what this Home was?  Thanks in advance to all or any replies I get.  ::)

Oh....That's a good question.

There are so many excellent artists.
