yep, spell it as you say it :D

Just on the subject, I was able to do a bit more research today with a little help from Joe (Dude) and can now say that Joseph married Sarah McMahon on the 27th of January 1881 in St Johns Church of Ireland in Newtownhamilton

They obviously moved to Warrenpoint shortly after as their first child Annie was born here in 1883

Brian - I remember your gt. grandmother.
She was a lovely lady.
You can tell from the write up for her
funeral she was well known and liked.
What year was this?

I have went back through some of the old pictures we have and rescanned some of them at a greater resolution - This is partly due to the advances in broadband that mean I can put larger pictures on here now (as long as I thumbnail them)

Like all photos there is a story behind them, this one is simply that my Grandfather was not known for doing this sort of thing (some say neither am I before they chip in) so I grabbed a quick snap and legged it. My Granny (Sadie) doing the dishes and I can see the mixer left of shot so this would have been after (or indeed during) a baking session.

Hi Brian
Back in 1946/47 I used to work with your Grandfather on Saturday mornings on the float going round the town selling vegetables, we went out as far as the houses just past Moygannon Bridge. It was cold and wet during the winter months. But great memories.
Regards
Philip Crozier

Great to see these photos Brian, though like you say, you'll be in BIG trouble from mission control I'd imagine! Your mum was (and still is!) a beautiful looking lady.........and of course I remember Sadie so well.........her baking was legendary. The mixer was a Kenwood Chef....the Rolls Royce of food mixers in its day. I saved for a long time for mine (and bought it from the late Thomas McGuigan, who used to sell electrical items in the shop attached to his garage in Meeting Street.) It only expired recently, having mixed many thousands of buns, cakes etc...........and survived a brief sojourn in Australia in the late eighties!

Sorry Brian I know this is off topic!

Hello Philip, I don't know if you will remember me, perhaps you'll remember
my older, late sister Lily Simpson (nee Magennis) who worked at the Baths many years
ago! Who am I? I'm Coral who also worked at the Baths but quite a few years later
than lily.
But hey wasn't there great fun to be had at the Baths all those years ago? I, think so.

Nice to see you on the forum.

Mags. :halloween3:

Yes Carol I do remember you and have fond memories of the great days at the baths.
I am pleased to say that Alfie is still with us although he has been in poor health for a number of years and is virtually house bound.

My mum's Kenwood is still working well. We have it and use it regularly!

Oh Philip I am so sorry for that mistake!! I can't remember who, but someone told me otherwise.
But, I'm very happy to know Alfie is still with us. Please give him my fondest regards and my best
wishes to you too. Coral.

Great photos Brian.........remember the mobile home there way back...........and can't help noticing the reg on the camper van............we had a VW one we bought from Terry O'Hare in 1978 and the reg was JDP628L........obviously the same year (of course, like all our motors it wasn't new when we bought it!) It was the first automatic I ever drove and I loved it......we had a glorious holiday in Scotland in it in 1979...........the awning sort of doubled it in size and meant we didn't trip over each other all the time!
I'll probably get an 'off topic' for this (why has the off topic smilie disappeared when I need it??)

but I must also say Violet and Gregory's wedding photos are beautiful .........and it's lovely to see the older generation looking so well too!

I would have been 8 when they got married, and by the look of it I still wasn't allowed to pick my own clothes ( be grateful it's in black and white).
