Personaly I don't think so. When I happened on this site originally there were a good few people posting. As with any organisation, club, site etc people die, age, emigrate, their circumstance change and brighter and shinier Facebook site open up and attract the "quick like" people who just want to look but not research and post.

My interests are gardening, travel, genealogy and family connectivity. I am particularily interested in how place shapes and moulds people and I know that Blackrock and the Boro in general have made me what I am. The mad thing is that through this site I have found distant and not too distant family members, have had site members research on my behalf, have had the pleasure of meeting the late great grammer and the amazing Strum wuu ....not to mention have had my gutters done by members family and my trees felled by other members. A Boro meiteal wuu wuu Roll on 2019

I agree it is very frustrating to see the number of people viewing this site. It is ever more frustrating when
what has been posted here is hoovered up and appears on an alternative site.
We need a few new members to give us the boost that will bring us back to the great site it has been.

Rocker, your memories of the turkey are great. My father also played Whist and we got great feeds
from his winnings. My very vivid memory is Crokes public house in Dun Laoghaire where there was always
a fantastic Christmas Raffle, the more tickets sold the more prizes there were. The hams were hung from
the ceiling in the pub, just imagine what they were like coming up to Christmas with all the cigarette smoke!
What started out as pale must have become smoked.

I well remember my mother sending turkeys to family in England. Bobby Neiland would just wrap the bird
in sacking, stitching it in, attach a couple of brown labels and they always reached their destinations.

Oh Sinead you are making me think of another great family yarn. I probably put it up here before...My mother moved to London after the war because the money was great and she was an experienced seamstress and they were in great demand in London. My father was pining for her so decided to woo her back. He got a turkey...by the sounds of it it was one of those Niland jobs in the sacking and he set out two days before Christmas on the boat with the turkey to impress my mother's sister. Some cuties saw the bird and my gentle Dad and when the train was stopped at Crewe she asked him to go and get her a cup of tea...off went my gentle Da and off went your woman with the turkey! Food was so scarce with the rationing that it must have been more than your woman could bear....anyway the next year my mother returned married my Da and the rest is history :lol: :lol:

Would that have been Air Mail? Or would the sacking have interfered with the wings? :D

We're on it at last Rocker, a local lad willing to help us out. I got all the details today but a lot has to be sorted first. Firstly we have a problem with the server in that we don't have access, user and password so we might just move the site over to a new one. Nothing will be lost in the transfer and it's not too costly.
We can also change the domain name to dunlaoghairecounty.com dunlaoghaire.net dunlaoghaire.info or dunlaoghairechat.ie
Anyway before anything is done I'm waiting for a response from the server to see if they will give us access first, hopefully tomorrow.
We will need donations but please do not pay anything yet until the paypal link is sorted out.
Sorry I felt embarrassed leaving you all in the lurch but hopefully we can sort this out as soon as.

Wishing you all a very healthy new year. thumbright

Thanks folks. How does dunlaoghaire.info sound to you, the problem with the "county" part is that search engines can never find it if somebody just types dun laoghaire into google for example?

dunlaoghairechat.ie?
