No.  I’m waiting until Dawson gets a bit bigger.  Aw.  Look what James has put on.  Bing Crosby.  I love old Bing 💕 Is the picture in Belfast?  I’ll get a better look at it when I post this.

 :)  Unfortunately the link to the related video timed out, but this version should work,...

"Is the picture in Belfast ?"
Presumably you mean the picture of the church on the previous page. ?

Yes it is,... want a clue to the location ?,... think of what Julie Andrews ran around on and sang about in that very famous film and song of hers,... then think of the name of the hole that a rabbit lives in.

Freda asked me to post this here for her,... because apparently she can't type an url/link herself.  :)

This is December 24, 1968,... and whether you were in Belfast or anywhere else at the time, if you were near a TV set or a radio, you were watching or listening to this very famous and powerful broadcast.   https://tinyurl.com/y89kfxwd

Great Boxing Day result for the wee blues. Should have been at least 7 or 8. Settle for 4-0 any day. Hope everyone had a good Boxing Day like I had.

Watching the women playing football reminded me of the glens.

Bohemians V Linfield (1924) Belfast,... silent footage, 2.45 minute clip.

1921 Shelbourne (Dublin) and Bohemian (Dublin) leave DIVISION A IRELAND in the Irish Football League, to play in the League of Ireland.

That clip might actually be this match,...

"In late December 1923 Otto ( Billy Otto/William H. Otto) captained the Bohs side that travelled to Belfast to take on Linfield. Bohs won the game 4-2 in one of the first matches played against northern opposition since the split."
