Got an opinion on one of our stories? We want to hear it!
Since the site’s launch last week we have had over 500 visitors
So far reactions to the site have been good, but people have been slow to leave comments.
So please do try and leave some comments, I want to test that the comment system is working ok.
Also the authors love to read user comments as it proves to them there is somebody out there reading their stuff and it encourages them to write more 😉

I am impressed about how professional, the layout of your Blog appears. The first inpression given is that I want to read all the content and can’t wait to do this. Brian, congratulations on your effort, you could rival Joe Baker.

Thanks David and Deirdre for your kind words. My day job is in web design so I suppose I have the advantage there 😉
To be clear the site is not in competition with any other history associations or individuals. Basically my role is to provide a platform for people to tell their stories, that is why I am very keen to get stories in from everyone not just historians.
In the future I plan to offer free advice and support to any organisations or individuals who need help putting historical material online. There is a lot of great stuff out there, we just need to make it more assessable for people.
I knew Eddie Boyce in the fifties and sixties. My father and mother were close friends of Eddie and his wife and daughter when they lived in Derriaghey crescent. We moved to England and then to Canada and lost touch with Eddie and his family. My parents are now deceased is Eddie still alive and what about his daughter. I would like to get in contact them. I spent many hours admiring his athletic medals as a small boy
