Is the first picture taken just outside Rostrevor? Just wondering as that looks like `carpingham` Haugheys place on the Greenpark Road away in the background...

It is yes, photo was taken on the road into Rostrevor, either just before the Ghan river (roughly between Martin McGinns house and the Petrol Station) or just as the houses were being built in St Colmans. (I was told but I forget :oops: )

This is another new picture on me. I might actually be in it. I see there are a lot of 'small people' in the cornet section last couple of rows :P . Does it look like an early 80s picture? That might be me on the far side behind the bass drum - you can just see my legs b-)

Lovely to see these photos, Jack Brown (R.I.P.) was my brother-in-law. In the third photo, the one with the three girls walking along on the right - is the middle girl Bertha McCoy?
