The following is from a list of essay competition prizewinners published in local newspapers in May 1939:



Which reads across to the following entry for Leopold Street in the 1939 Belfast street directory on the Lennon Wylie website, the shop was on the corner with Enfield Street:

234. Lyle, Mrs. Mary
236. Donaghey, W. H., grocer
...here is Enfield Street
238. Smyth, Samuel, hairdresser

The death notices for Annie Jean Donaghey indicate she was née Leckey, the GRONI website has a Belfast registered marriage on 6 June 1925 for William Donaghey and Annie Leckey, it's pay to view.

The 1969 death notices for the Annie Jean Donaghey referred to in the above burial records (some of the notices call her just Jean) refer to her as the wife of the late William Henry Donaghey, there is mention of a daughter Bonita married to a Billy (with children Paul and Alan), and mention of a grandson Billy Neill and family of 11 Carrickmannin Gardens, Kilcooley Estate in Bangor.

I know, Jimmy.  It was me that sent them.

They had extra staff in the florists for the roses I was sent.  🥀 🌹 Aw memories.  So many men.  So little time.

We need to find Colin Randell, Rebecca and Boxer.  It will be a long time before Patrick Joseph-martin Dunlop gets another break

Does anyone remember Mary Johnson who lived in 1 St Brendan's Path, Divis Flats, between 1968 -1974. She trained as a nurse at RVH then went to Canada in mid_1970s. Would love to hear what happened to Mary, Ray Russell :D
