Miscellaneous Notes

My grandmother told me that her father grew up in Northern Ireland and had a strong Belfast accent. When she was a child the family regularly visited their father’s family in both Belfast and Newcastle, Co. Down. They had a Great Uncle Jack who lived in the Falls area of Belfast.
