I was checking your site again today and found that there is s Joseph Monaghan on Carleton Street and 8 other Monaghan's: Ann,Annie, Dathleen, John, Joseph (maybe the one above), Catherine, and Thomas. Also a James McCavanagh on Obin street-which is where my Grandfather Patrick McCavanagh & Grandmother Margaret Monaghan lived back in 1913 and before. I hope to get in touch with some on this list. I hope you are doing well Mr. Jim and thank you for this wonderful and informative site.

Hi, I have been contacted by a German man called Thomas Benning looking for an old friend called Kate Livingstone (likely she could now be married) from Lurgan. He worked together with her in 1988 in Paris in a community for disabled people, but lost contact and can't find anything about her. One of the group photos on the Presentation Convent Primary School has a Catherine Livingstone who would seem to be the right age. Does anyone know her?

I always enjoy looking back at the old buildings
and streets that have gone and feel the town has lost it's character. Hope it can become the hub of the North again.

Great to see some of the old photos. I attended both Killicomaine and then Portadown College in the late 1960s/70. I can remember some of the faces and places from that era. A great collection.

Jim, congratulations on a great piece of work.
Left Portadown in 1973.Have been back several times and keep seeing changes. Its nice to enjoy the old photos and think of by gone days. Grew up at 39 Woodside hill and remember your mum & dad tending the roses. Keep doing what you do best, live long and stay healthy.

I think I have photos of Robert Henry McKee from School and a few later, if you would like me to send please forward your email address. I am sure I will be able to help.
Many Thanks

In response to the below message from page 3
I'm the son of Robert Henry McKee student of the Portadown area he was born April 11/1934
He had a family farm in Armah which was lost to him when the patriarch died in the early 50's.
My father lost all his belongings when he landed in Montreal 1962.
His father was killed june 6 1944. A picture of him or mention in the alumni group would be wonderful. He often spoke about Portadown tech going and traveling there.
Thank you for what ever time you contribute to the matter.

=D I hope you can hear me Mr. Jim, as I am shouting "hello" from across the Ocean. I met you back in June of 2002. I just wanted to say Hi and see how you are doing. I just retired from teaching Kindergarten for 36 yrs. Maybe I'll be back to Ireland now that I have some time. Hope to hear from you.

I have enjoyed the photos so much, I remember teachers and pupils from Edenderry Primary and Killicomaine. Wonderful to put this together. I remember my mother talking about Jim Little.
A joy, thank you.

I mention previously that I had visited Portadown in 1962. After looking through the site again I have come up with some new observations. The Bar I visited must have been the Railway Arms in Woodhouse St mine host was Billy Murray who went to school with my father Matthew Keogh. My great uncle Francie Lavery (The Govenor)also frequented the bar along with half the other bars in the area. I visited a few with him. I remember drinking the odd hot wine in Wards Vincent or Dominic are names that come to mind. If any one has a recollection of those times post something on these pages.

I'm related to Loney/Mitchell/McKitterick/Allen and others. Frances Forker, you're welcome to get in touch with me. My grandmother was an aunt to your husband, and my mother and aunt visited you in the late 80's.
