The Scottish winger may have been Jackie Hutton.

Anyone remember if Billy McCullough had a nickname ?
Also, in the mid sixties the Glens brought two scottish players over.
One was a mid fielder possibly called Mc Donnell ??  and the other was a winger, can't remember his name. Can anyone help me out here ?

Don't forget The Golden Vision Alex Young he was a Scot

They may be [censored] stirrers.Though to me it's not hate speachless. Though these days to be critical of Islam is deemed to be. The Religion is ring fenced from criticism. Say all you want about Christianity sure who cares!
I don't think that those assertions are quite right. There is no prohibition in Britain on criticising Muslim religious dogma and practice, nor on criticising Christianity for similar reasons.

That's not usually what happens in these sorts of situations though,... what commonly happens is that such criticisms of Islam, is immediately extrapolated to imply, or even to directly claim, that all Muslims subscribe to and endorse, murderous brutality,... which just isn't either true nor justified,... and when that is done, it's an example of racist bigotry in the fullest and most justifiable use of those terms,... and it's hate speech, and it's illegal in Britain.

The common assertion that criticism and condemnation of such bigoted hate speech, is merely an example of "political correctness", is just a common and overused spurious self justifying tool that the people who make or who support such bigoted claims, use to try and cast themselves in the role of oppressed and censored victims, by trying to misrepresent derogatory license as being the same thing as lawful free speech, which it isn't and never has been.

A labourer in Finmore Street when daughter Martha's birth registered in 1897:

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1897/02109/1802979.pdf

So you're looking for a death from approx. mid January 1897 onwards, to autumn 1899.


Martha died in January 1900, father Charles described as fireman (deceased), could have meant, but not necessarily, a fireman / stoker on a boat:

In that case can't be "A Charles Josiah Harding died in Govan, Glasgow in 1895, aged 37",

Martha Harding/Mcbride, re- married to James Hanna about 1900. widow on cert.

Thank you CMcG,

As a decendent of Emma, I have been looking on and off for Charles Harding for the last 10+ years.

Thought he might have died in army abroad, as on Jane's birth cert.

But how come he is a labourer on Emma's.

Did he go back to sea?

Could have been, as Elwyn posted "A Charles Josiah Harding died in Govan, Glasgow in 1895, aged 37".

Need to find this out next.

regards
