Meet The Old Folks -- Mourne Observer

Home Latest Updates Meaney Stuff Co.Down Stuff My Family History Acknowledgements Useful Links

I have created this page as a place to post published newspaper interviews with people who reminisce what it was like to  live in Co. Down in bygone days. 

I begin with a couple of articles from the Mourne Observer one of which was published in a series headed 'Meet the Old Folks'

Because such reminiscences are not only fascinating to read but also of great importance to the family historian I would be grateful to anyone who can provide me with other Mourne Observer material published under the 'Meet the old Folks' heading or other such suitable material which I can add to this page.

I would like to thank Gemma Ward and here staff at Ballynahinch library for their help in providing this material.
