Comments: Regarding the comments made by Tom Whyte Hi Tom!, i was reading the comments you made on the Portadown website , and could'nt help noticing that you had missed the point. The reason Squire does'nt have photographs of any other part of N.Ireland is because it is'nt a N.Ireland website, it is a PORTADOWN WEBSITE.....get the drift ;-) happy surfing!

Joy said to go up towards Newcastle to get pictures of the stone fences. Bob is amazed at all of the blue sky in your picures - where are all of the grey clouds and rain he keeps telling us about - or is he pulling our leg? Good night!

Comments:Thank you for the visual delight. You are very talented in composition and this makes the pictures very enjoyable. I would love to see more as coincidentally I am researching the genealogy of a friend whose grandmother was from the area and Dungannon. I found it interesting that the flowers and foliage are recognizable as many of the same natural plants are found here, a half a world away. One suggestion.....perhaps a way to change from one page to the next without having to scroll back to the top to "click" the next choice. Thanks again for the tour! I followed the link that you posted to Rootsweb list memebers.

Comments:Do you recall the expression: "Stop!...and smell the roses." Well, in the hustle and bustle of hurried and harried life, I have loved your pictures...as you have stopped...and seen..and SHARED...your wonderful surroundings. I have visited your Town--about 20 years ago; I was there a week. After seeing your pictures, I now know I really didn't see and experience the 'real' community and surroundings in my haste... Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful snapshots of current life of God's wonderful place, people and surroundings that you now call 'home.' I have a new appreciation for this seat of the McCann celtic clan that originally called this area 'home' 1000-1200 years ago...

Comments:re Finlandia. There is a lovely piece of music (by Greig?) called Finlandia but I understood that the building was a wooden prefab from Finland and that's why it was named Finlandia. I had classes in both locations, having experienced the "long march" from Bann House to Killycomaine where Finlandia was waiting for us, having been moved over the summer. "Baldy" Anderson's Finlandia French lessons must have done some good as I ended up with a wife from Paris!.

I have only one question: What is the creature newly hatched from its shell (about page 4)? Very curious looking bit of fuzziness. Thanks for letting me browse about. I stumbled onto your site through a link provided on Portadown News. Really, all I wanted to do was learn how to spell "Portadown" in English so I could complete an entry into a Gaeilge lesson.

Comments:G'day, I was born in Portadown and lived in Meadow Lane till we emigrated to Australia in 1970. Have been back a few times, including living down south in Navan Co. Meath. I too have had great fun over the years with my digital camera and amazingly enough I have photos around Navan almost identical to some you've taken around Corcrain (dandelions, insects, etc.) - a great pastime on those days when the sun manages to come out in Ireland! Keep up the good work!

Comments:I was brought up in Loughgall and went to school in Portadown. I lived there for 24 years before emigrating to Australia with my husband (who is also from this area). Thank you for these wonderful photos - it brings back alot of good memories. I can show my Australian children where I was brought up and share my good times and fond memories of Portadown with them. They are beautiful photos and I see alot of changes in Portadown, which is a wonderful place and lots of interesting characters there.

I am eager to learn about Portadown after finding out that my ancestor, James Liggett, son of Robert, was probably born in the vicinity in 1812. I have been frustrated in my search for information about the area for a future visit. The search engines bring up a history of violence and little else which doesn't feel very inviting. Beautiful pictures and an interesting link between your home and mine. Which side does the territorial curb colors of red, white, and blue refer too?

My first trip 'home' to Ireland - a descendant of McBurneys of Ballyshielmore (near Clare, near Tandragee). So, I find your link on the BRTD site, and there I find pictures of Loveland, Colorado and Rocky Mountain National Park, where I work! Is this a small world or what! Good stuff.

Comments:Keep up the good work and put PORTADOWN ON THE MAP! Try to protect places that keep history alive, lest we loose places like THE OLD RECTORY, ARMAGH ROAD, which was built by my ancestors and where I spent my happy teenage years before it was abolished. If you want infomation on it, I do have some details, or if you could find out more, please let me know. I have a cherished painting of the building, by a local artist (Nicholson) which is my only permanent memory of my former home. The Portadown Times was established by a relative of mine, the late Henry Woolsey (a former mayor of Portadown and historic figure in the town's history). I understand the Woolsey family, who now live in London, have the records of the establishing of the PORTDOWN TIMES and all subsequent records (not the present owners, Morton Newspapers). You may be able to get access to these and resurrect our heritage. If I can help as a writer and relative of Henry Woolsey, please let me know. I am a busy person, but
