In their Assembly voted democratically against Home Rule, by votes to 43, and therefore, in nationalist eyes, they were seen quite definitely as being in the “enemy camp”. Class envy was also a factor, although in Donegal there was no major class difference between Protestant and Catholic farmers, with the exception of the Protestant gentry. Geographically, Donegal Unionists were concentrated towards the east of the county.
A British Intelligence report drew an “imaginary line” between Dunkineely in the South West to Moville in the North East – east of this line was where Unionists were strongest, although they did have other strongholds; most notably around Hom Head, Carrigart and Kilmacrennan. Thus we can see that the Unionist community was largely split in two – between East and South Donegal.
However there were differences between the two communities; Joan Vincent identifies the Eastern community as having the three characteristic indices of Scottish settlement: Scottish surnames, Presbyterianism and the Ulster-Scots dialect. Indeed she identifies the area immediately west of Londonderry, “the Laggan”, as being a “core” Ulster-Scots area.
In contrast the South Donegal Protestants didn’t have these characteristics. The strength of Unionism in certain areas of Donegal can best be seen in the recommendations of the Boundary Commission in , which urged the transfer of the “Laggan” area west of Londonderry an area exclusive of the unionist enclave of Raphoe to Northern Ireland. The Donegal Protestant Registration Association claimed that “the Unionist inhabitants of [Donegal] desired that it should be included in Northern Ireland, and that the economic difficulties occasioned by the boundary would thereby be removed” The DPRA had a point, as the following table shows: The report of the Boundary Commission is useful in examining the geographical placement of Donegal Unionists during the war of independence, even though it’s findings were never implemented.

Law Obituaries Richard Ferguson, QC Richard Ferguson, who died on July 26 aged 73, was one of the outstanding advocates at the Bar, appearing for the defence in a string of highly publicised trials. It formed a deadly combination with his extremely sharp legal mind, which could take points at vast speed. Ferguson’s numerous high-profile clients included two of the Birmingham Six; Ernest Saunders in the Guinness trial; the boxer Terry Marsh, acquitted of the attempted murder of the promoter Frank Warren; and the REM guitarist Peter Buck, acquitted of air rage on the ground that a medical mix-up had caused “non-insane automatism”.
The most notorious was Rosemary West, tried at Winchester Crown Court for mass murder in after her husband had committed suicide. The case was unusual in that there was no direct evidence of her part in the crimes with which she was charged.
Jun 01, · Steve Marriott. Stephen Peter “Steve” Marriott (30 January – 20 April ) was an English musician, songwriter and frontman of two notable rock and roll .
Marriott is remembered for his powerful singing voice which belied his small stature, and for his aggressive approach as a guitarist in mod rock bands Small Faces — and Humble Pie — and — In Britain, Marriott became a popular, often-photographed mod style icon through his role as lead singer and guitarist with the Small Faces in the mid to late s. In later life Marriott became disillusioned with the music industry and turned his back on the big record companies, remaining in relative obscurity.
He returned to his music roots playing the pubs and clubs around London and Essex. Black Sabbath frontman, Ozzy Osbourne, named Marriott the fourth greatest singer and Clem Burke of Blondie named him the sixteenth greatest singer. Paul Stanley of Kiss has said: Keith Richards listed Marriott as one of his five favourite artists of all time. Steve Perry of Journey has said that: Marriott came from a working-class background and attended Monega Junior School.
For a short time he also sold pie and mash. Bill bought Marriott a ukulele and harmonica which Marriott taught himself to play.

Advertisements Foundation Emain Macha or Navan Fort at the city’s edge, is believed to have been used as an ancient pagan ritual or ceremonial site. According to Irish mythology it was once the capital of Ulster , until it was abandoned during the 1st century. The site was named after the goddess Macha , and as the settlement grew on the hills nearby, it was also named after the goddess — Ard Mhacha means “The Height of Macha”.

Much improved, David Jeffrey has seen United rise to fourth in the table and but for a few late goals conceded against Coleraine and Ards they would have been two places higher. They are also fresh from a stunning win over Linfield in th League Cup. Crusaders are champions and league leaders for a reason as they showed when they miraculously came from three goals down to win against Cliftonville in their last Premiership game two weeks ago. They also came from behind to win away to Portadown in the League Cup in midweek.
Despite this, Glenavon will be hoping that now is a good time to face the East Antrim side with Gary Hamilton’s men unbeaten in the last seven meetings. However, the addition of striker Martin Murray will give Carrick a lot more threat up front as they aim to get some points to move up the table. Reds boss Gerard Lyttle said his players were gutted after they lost to Crusaders recently but he got a response last Saturday when they got three points from Carrick Rangers and on Wednesday when they put six past Annagh United.
Ards fell to a last minute winner against Coleraine one week ago but Niall Currie will be reminding his players that they matched Cliftonville on matchday one. However, with new manager Gary Haveron in place, the Glens might just start to find a bit more consistency in their quest to climb up the table. Coleraine won their first game in four last time out thanks to a 91st winner at Ards so Oran Kearney will be asking his side to get another win on the board as they aim to improve on their third place in the table.
I had always been told that there were no surviving records of the old school, so this document was of considerable interest, and a study of it has answered a number of questions about education in Lurgan in the first two decades of this century. Girls Schooling in Lurgan As I noted in my articles on 19th century schools in Lurgan, there was a long established tradition of Girls schooling in Lurgan, dating back to the s and earlier.
I suggested then that there may have been only one school, but with a succession of proprietors, as was normal practice at the time. Mrs Green’s School, in North Street, seems to have ceased operating around

Clarke This article is a survey of some of the materials of interest in the grave-yards of Magheralin, Moira, Donaghcloney and Tullylish parishes, which are included in the Craigavon area. It is apparent to anyone that the headstones in all old graveyards are gradually deteriorating or being actively destroyed. If this were happening to records on paper, there would be great activity to preserve or at least record these before destruction. However, only in a few areas of Ireland is anything in this direction being done e.
The comparison is not unreasonable since in many cases stones provide the sole records of births, marriages and deaths for a particular family. This, it must be said, is much less of a problem in north-west Down than in the Ards or Lecale, where most of the churches were small and the old registers were taken to the Four Courts, Dublin, and destroyed in However, here as elsewhere each parish has an average of 3 old graveyards, embracing various denominations and the Parish or Church of Ireland registers are far from complete records of all parishioners.
