That photo was taken at Cranfield in the summer of 1978 (?), Seamus of Havelock Place, passed away after that, I think he was only in his early 20's. The green Ford Granada in the photo belonged to Gerry Heatley, then of Great Georges Street.

x-paddy I believe you are getting Liam 'Toots' O'Hare and Dominic O'Hare mixed up. Liam O'Hare was a Chemist with a practise in Hill Street, Newry, and he used to live in Havelock Place. Dominic O'Hare was an Insurance Agent, who lived around near the end of Sea View, I could be corrected about that. Dominic O'Hare was a regular caller to people's houses here in the town collecting insurance money, and I seem to remember he wore a big heavy raincoat, and his hair was always well plastered down. I think he was married to a Nurse Brogan, who was possibly a local Midwife or a Health Visitor, again I could be corrected on that. I think she drove a Green Morris 1000, but you would have to get that verified, as my knowledge of cars is very limited.I think they moved to Belfast in the late 1960's, but I am unsure?

Dukestreet - you are right.
It was Dominic who was married
to Nurse Brogan.
She was a midwife, and I remember
her living in Queen St just down from
Hoggs, going towards the Baths.
Thanks for keeping me right.

x-paddy I was informed just last night that Dominc O'Hare and his wife have both passed away in the last few years. I was also told that Mrs. O'Hare (Nurse Brogan) possibly came from County Tyrone.

I am sure both of them would have been in their middle to late 80's. I can't remember who it was, but when we were youngsters, someone in our Avenue would describe Nurse Brogan as 'the Nurse who brought the babies in her wee bag.'

Hello All,
I've enjoyed the chat about Dominic O'Hare and Bridget Brogan (Nurse Brogan). Lovely people. My father's younger brother. Dominic died in 2004 and Bridget died just before Christmas 2011. They lived in Orpen Park in Belfast.

I came cross this by accident. Back in 1977, I shared a student house in Heaton, Newcastle-upon-Tyne with Seamus and 5 others. We weren't close or anything. I just happened to be there the night Seamus first became very ill. He later stayed in the university Sick Bay, but he didn't appear to get any better. Really upsetting, seeing him get thinner and thinner. I understand that when he went back to Newry, his mother managed to restore him to some better health, but not for long. Very sad that the life of such a nice young man was cut short. Lovely picture. Just how I remember Seamus.
