Hi Catherine I have just been looking at Geraldine's surprise party pics with Mary, they are fab!!! It so lovely to see people who have grown up together still in the same community, something to treasure I can tell you. This is a great website and I do look at it frequently..but somehow I get lost in time and wonder where the day went. Its so good to see a little bit of home and the people we know, thanks for doing this as it means a lot to us 'over the water'. I'm trying to work our wee Mary but shes not budging!!! but so glad to have her here with me...as you can imagine we have so many laughs!! best regards Meg Corby (Margaret Byrne)

I just loved the photo's of Geraldine's birthday, looked like a great night. Well done everyone for keeping the secret, hard to believe she never found out... Also Catherine I loved the very last photo of my dad, is there any chance you could email me a copy of it please?? Paula
Good to hear from you Paula. It was almost as big a miracle to get Eamon Campbell in a photo as it was keeping the secret from Geraldine! I'll send the photo on now. Take care Catherine

I've just been enjoying the photos of cousin Geraldine's b'day bash. What a wonderful surprise and as you say surprising Geraldine is not easy! I loved the poem - it is so true. She is the 'mayoress' of Laurencetown and absolutely everyone knows and loves her. Sorry I couldn't be there but sister Mary did a fantastic job. Love Liz
Thanks for that Liz. Geraldine's feet still haven't reached the ground!

Ulster Society of Church Organists & Choirmasters.
by Colum McGarry from Laurencetown Church Organ
11. May 2010
On Saturday 17th April 2010, the Ulster Society of Church Organists and Choirmasters came to visit the organ in Laurencetown Church at 3pm. I played a short recital to demonstrate the instruments flexability, I then proceeded to explain the history of the organ, soon after, Fr. Powell arrived to welcome them all to the Church, I also invited those present to play the organ for themselves. They were amazed at the organs sound and the acoustic of the Church which has been improved by the new ceiling, they were also highly impressed by the beauty of the Church and the grandeur of the new ceiling. The Organ was built by Evans & Barr in 1943 and was installed in Great Victoria St Presbyterian Church, Belfast until the Churches Closure in 1965. Fr. Seamus Moore heard about the organ that needed a new home, so under his direction, it was installed in Laurencetown and was first played on Holy Thursday in 1966. In 1999-2000, the organ was overhauled and the stoplist extended and in 2008, Organ builder, Mr. Alistair McCartney carried out further improvements by re-voicing various stops to suit the building, also correcting various faults that needed remedied in order for this instrument to sound to its full capacity, in total, the organ has 811 pipes. Unfortunately in this day and age, many young people don't seem to be interested in learning to play the organ, or the piano for that matter, Church musicians are dwindling out throughout the country. I myself, believe in encouraging young people to learn and play, but unfortunatley, I don't know anyone who I could encourage to someday 'Share the reins'. If there is anyone out there who are taking piano lessons with knowledge of music reading skills, I would like to hear from them.
