Belfast History and Memories / Re: Sandy Row
« Last post by DJ on Today at 02:39:21 PM »
HI JIMMY,  I GUESS YOU'RE RIGHT.  BUT THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO CAME FROM SANDY ROW AND HAVE LOTS OF STORIES TO TELL, THEY MIGHT NOT THINK THEY DO BUT WHAT THEY DID AS A  YOUNGSTER   OR EVEN  GOING DOWN TOWN AND SHOPPING,  THAT'S TELLING US  A STORY.  I HOPE  IT DOES NOT , I WON'T EVEN SAY IT.  MAYBE SOME   FACES WHO LEFT US TO GO TO FACE BOOK COULD COME BACK  AND DROP A LINE OR TWO.  THEY DON'T HAVE TO DO IT EVERY DAY.  LIZ :-*

Hi Liz, I hope you are well. Itís you who keeps this thread alive without even realising it, so donít be despondent. I came from off the Donegal Road but hung around Sandy Row in my teens. I also was a member of Blythe Street Boys club and attended Kelvin Secondary School. They were happy days just didnít realise it at the time.

           That Billy Boy never rode a white horse it was a brown one but who cares Billy is our hero , when we left our home and went to live in Dover Street on the heel & ankle on our gable wall was Billy Boy on the worst white horse that was ever painted the painter must have come from the Yard and slapped it on like he was painting suer pipes .
Could LR or Silver tell me what a suer pipe is??

no need to be rude... it is obvious why he ask the question. if you cant answer then say it ? 

It's just the sort of answer you expect from ExBuckfastdrinker. He rarely does answer anything. ::) It's what he does when he realises he has said something daft and gets challenged on it.

Belfast Genealogy / Re: John Kennedy Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers

You're talking about the Second Boer War ... 11 October 1899 Ė 31 May 1902.

The soldier in that regiment with the regimental number of 5586 enlisted into, or was transferred into, the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, between late July 1898 and the end of January 1899.

He's Kelly Campbell O'Neill Kennedy !,... are you sure that you aren't getting different people mixed up. ?!
James, what was the name of the above soldier you have found and can you post the link or name the source to the record please?   Hard to believe, I know but Eileen isn't getting different people mixed up!!
