BELGIAN REFUGEES AT WARRENPOINT
The scheme for the reception and entertainment of Belgian refugees at Warrenpoint has been attended with a satisfactory measure of success. The movement originated with Mrs. Alexander Fisher and Mrs. C. O’Hare, who, as the result of visits to the townspeople, obtained many promises of subscriptions. A general committee was then appointed to carry out the arrangements; Bayview House, Donaghaguy Road, was taken at a reduced rent from Mr. Mallie, while Mrs. McGrath of Airdrie, Scotland, gave the use of Cedar Cottage, Back Seaview, for six months free of charge, and, in addition, contributed £5 towards the furnishings. Numerous people assisted in the equipment of the premises. There are now 11 Belgian refugees in Bayview House and 8 in Cedar Cottage. The list of subscribers is a large one, and the subscriptions vary from 1/- to 2/- weekly. Some of the subscribers paid one month’s subscriptions and others six months in advance. It is also worthy of note that £16-6-0 was realised as a result of a Whist Drive originated by Mrs. W. Watson Glenny. Mrs. Adam Turner kindly supplied, free of charge, an omnibus to convey a party of Belgian refugees from the boat to the train in Belfast. The refugees upon arrival in Warrenpoint were brought to Bayview house and Cedar Cottage on cars provided, free of charge, by Messrs. Jones Sons & Company, Mrs. Smith Fern Hill, Mr. T. O’Hare, Mr. Carvill, Mr. Kelly, Mr. Kelly and Mr. E.O’are. Coals were supplied for the premises by Mrs. McClusky, Mr. T. O’Hare and Mr. Curlett. Several days work was done gratis Mr. Archie Wilson, Ballymaconaghy. The local doctors are kindly acting as honoury physicians, and the Committee of the Warrenpoint District Nursing Society have kindly allowed the District Nurse (Nurse McMahon) to act in case of emergency. Miss Colvin has generously given the use of a room at The shelbourne for meetings of the committee, of which Miss Kewley is the Hon. Sec., andMrs. Brill the Hon. Treas.

I know there is postcard with those buildings showing and it's named "Athelby Terrace" but according to this thread that means there were in fact two Athelby Terraces? (entirely possible by the way) http://www.oldwarrenpointforum.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4427&p=49250

A question was asked as to the location of "The Cottage"

The address is 34 Seaview .....

Previous owners:

Mrs H Campbell then Mr John Purdy and more recently Mr M P Lee. Hence the name of the right of way through from Springfield Road to Seaview was over many years referred to as " Campbell's Lane", Purdy's Lane" and latterly "Lee's Lane"? Will the name be changed once again !!!

A further update.
There is another property along Seaview which was known as " Seaview Cottage"
This is not to be confused with "The Cottage" at 34 Seaview.
"Seaview Cottage " is No.38 Seaview.
This was the home of Mr S Connor ( S Connor & Son. Chemists , Hill Street Newry) and latterly
"Seaview Cottage" was the residence of Mr A J Forde ( Newry dentist) and Mrs Ailsa Forde.
Currently the home of the Hughes family.
Just a little bit more history !!!!
