HI LIZ, SORRY YOUR GOING TO MISS YOUR FRIEND, A WEEK WILL FLY IN BUT YOU KNOW WE'RE ALWAYS AROUND IF YOU NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO. I WISH I WAS GOING TO FLORIDA  :(
IT HAS BEEN VERY HUMID AND TOMORROW IS SUPPOSED TO BE WORSE, I MISS SITTING IN THE GARDEN IN THE EVENING BUT I CAN'T TAKE A CHANCE WITH THE MOSQUITO'S THEY COME RIGHT FOR ME.  ::)
 WE HAD A LOVELY COUPLE OF DAYS AT SARA'S COTTAGE LAST WEEK, THE FIRST DAY THE  LAKE WAS A BIT STRONG BUT THURSDAY IT WAS LOVELY AND CALM. SHE'S NOT FAR FROM SAUBLE BEACH SO WE HAD TO GO SEE IF THINGS HAD CHANGED OVER THE YEARS, WE USED TO TAKE THE KIDS CAMPING THERE WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG. IT'S STILL A NICE WEE HOLIDAY PLACE FOR YOUNG FAMILIES.

BOBBY AND MY SISTER HAVE JUST ARRIVED HOME FROM BAND PRACTICE, THEY FINISHED EARLY TONIGHT.    SO  I'LL SAY  NITE NITE AND SEE YOU TOMORROW  :-**,
RUBY I THINK I SOUNDED SO WINEY.  I KNOW I CAN COME ON HERE AND TALK AND YOU  LISTEN HA HA. TODAY WAS VERY HUMID AND I THINK BECAUSE WE LEFT MY WINDOW OPEN  IT FELT WORSE.  IT'S STILL OPEN  AS IT GETS COOLER AT NIGHT BUT I'LL SEE ABOUT TOMORROW.  I'VE NOT HAD TO PUT THE AIR ON AS IT'S BEEN OK.  BUT WHEN I CAME OUT AND SAT DOWN I PUT IT ON  TO GET COOL HA.  IS THERE ANYTHING YOU CAN USE OR WEAR TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE MOSQUITOS,  THEY ARE NASTY LITTLE THINGS AND THEY BITE. I'M GLAD YOU HAD A NICE COUPLE OF DAYS, YOU NEED SOMETHING LIKE THAT JUST TO  CLEAR YOUR HEAD.   THAT SOUNDED SO NICE, I MEAN SAYING BOBBY AND YOUR SISTER JUST CAME HOME.   I CAN HEAR THUNDER IN THE DISTANCE, IT'S BEEN GOING ON NOW THIS WHILE.  IT SOUNDS LIKE LIGHTENING WILL COME AT ANY MINUTE.  WELL LOVE I HOPE TOMORROW YOU CAN SIT OUT IN THE GARDEN, FEET UP AND A WEE GLASS IN YOUR HANDS. HA.  SIP SIP.  LIZ XXX

JimG:
the reference to Carrowdore is from an Army cert. of discharge for William MAGEE (who married Ellen KERR, we suppose / presume), he said he was born in the parish of Carrowdore, the document photocopy came from a cousin (living in Belfast) of my grandfather, perhaps this William is NOT who married Ellen KERR??He served 1889 to 1902, joined at Newtownards, discharged at Belfast; serving in 3rd. [8th.?]  Batt. of Royal Irish Rifles, service number 1557, we have no other document(s) to show this definitely IS the William who married Ellen KERR. We have tried to find his service record but the whereabouts of 3rd. Batt. of RIR is not clear ??
Sorry, I would attach a .jpeg of the certificate of discharge, but can see NO link to attach / add the same to this message ... it would be helpful to determine IF William MAGEE of Carrowdore is connected, or not!?

Waringstown-a beautiful peaceful and pristine corner of memories for me over many years in my `salad days`.

The Textile Mill,the Cricket Team,but most of all-The Boxtree Restaurant.A collection of cottages dating back to the 1600`s all converted into the best Restaurant ever to my mind.Nowhere in Ireland could compare to that place.They were still operating in the late 1980`s but its now long gone.

To read that this once beautiful little village has been put on the map for such a reason as someone taking a gun and shooting someone on Main Street is soul destroying.

it is jilly all the wrong reasons
