Sorry Jilly I meant no offence I did not say ashamed. I probably used the wrong wording - distressed/ shocked and grieving is  what I was trying to say. Jo

No way were the people of Belfast ashamed of the Titanic.

Whats on in Belfast / Re: Stormont Gardening Club
« Last post by ruthforrester on Today at 02:38:47 PM »
Hello Christopher,
I have neglected my garden for 10 years - it is bare and minimal - a 'lawn' made up almost entirely of clover and no flower beds.
This summer I have made a new start but I seem to be doing a lot of work that doesn't require plants: power washed the paving and driveway, cleared a derelict area beneath a very old tree and seem to be digging a lot of holes.
Does the Stormont Gardening Club meet regularly to provide advice, guidance and support to other (new) active gardeners?
Do they swap cuttings and experience?

Regards
Ruth Forrester

My grandfather James Connolly worked  on the Titanic lifeboats.  My father only mentioned when the Titanic movie was released.  He said he never mentioned it before then as many Belfast people were very sad at the loss of life and they felt shamed by the loss of the Titanic too.He was listed as a hackle maker in the 1901 Census
 And later on in 1921 as a saw mill worker.

Just finished looking at the records. How on earth do you do it? You have discovered more in a few hours than I have in a lifetime! I remember visiting my grandmother a few times in Tennent Street. Austin and his wife Marie lived with her. I cannot recollect meeting her second husband so I am unsure if they were separated or if he was deceased. I cannot express my appreciation enough. I feel pieces of the jigsaw are slotting together eventually. I have to say they are very creative regarding their ages lol. Here's looking forward to more discoveries.
Thank you
Geraldine
