Police Ombudsman seeks information about Troubles deaths dating back to BelfastTelegraph. They include a schoolboy, a soldier and two others who were gunned down after a night of heavy rioting in Belfast in August Despite the passage of time, a spokesman for the Ombudsman’s office they could not assume no new information would come to light. The area has changed dramatically and many of the buildings have been demolished.
The people who lived and worked there are either no longer with us or, at the very least, are in late middle age. It can be a challenge to find people who witnessed events and we then have to hope they have a clear memory of the incidents in question. But we cannot make the assumption that there is no one out there with new information which would assist us. They included nine-year-old Patrick Rooney, who was shot in the head at around 1am on August 15 at his home on St Brendan’s Path in the Divis complex.
Samuel McLarnon, 28, died after being hit in the head at his home on Herbert Street in the Ardoyne area, during rioting in the area that evening. The Ombudsman is also seeking information about Hugh McCabe, a year-old soldier with the Queen’s Royal Irish Hussars who was on home leave when he was shot shortly after midnight at the Whitehall block of flats in the Divis complex.

The Pump Makers. These are the ones we’ve found so far – listed in alphabetical order (there will be more).

By Michael Boyle, St. What a year it has been? Who would ever imagined them together sitting down at the same table in Stormont? Forty years ago many people, like me, living in rural Northern Ireland believed that these events would never ever happen let alone in our lifetime. Therefore, it is important to have some understanding of what it was like to live in this kind on environment. I will, in this paper, give a personal view of the divided society in which I grew up in South Derry.
Any complex society has multiple layers and some of my nuances and anecdotes will illustrate some of the many subtleties to an outsider. Fundamental to any understanding of Northern Ireland is a knowledge how divisions have been both perpetuated and entrenched. Secondly, I will examine the unique role of the Gaelic Athletic Association GAA in rural Irish society and furthermore I will explore how the rules of this association were perceived as being a hindrance or barrier to unity in Irish sport.
A Gathering Place for Irish Art British Many British artists have painted Irish scenes over the years, whether for commercial purposes, or in a private capacity, and I will be adding them to this page.

O’Hampsey After being made according to its inscription in , in Ballinascreen, modern Draperstown , Co. Derry, the harp was bought for year-old Denis O’Hampsey this would be in if we accept his claimed year of birth by his first patron, Counsellor Canning, in Garvagh, Co. Derry, along with two other gentlemen, Gage and Bacon. Denis O’Hampsey apparently played this harp for the whole of his life after that. He travelled widely in Ireland and Scotland, including a visit to Holyrood House in Edinburgh in when he played in front of Charles Stuart.
In he was at the Belfast harpers’ meeting, where, as the only person there to adhere to the old playing style with long fingernails, and with a very old and conservative repertory, he caught the interest of Edward Bunting. Bunting noted down many tunes from O’Hampsey’s playing; amazingly, the manuscripts survive and as well as providing the raw material for 19th century Irish music collections, are the basis of today’s revival of the historical Gaelic harp.
