Such wonderful stories I read! Anyone have an ancestor named James Duffey b.1723 with a son Michael Duffey b. 1753
My grandfather, Albert Barry (1866-1945) and his wife Lizzie (Fegan) moved to Carlingford for the period ~1920-28. Albert had previously been ship's
carpenter for coastguard lightships in Cork and Down, before working in the
Glasgow shipyards 1907-20. It is said that he was harbourmaster at
Carlingford Lough 1920-28, whether at Carlingford or Warrenpoint not being
known. Of course, maybe he was working as a shipwright on- or offshore. The children were educated in Newry and possibly also Dundalk. I've been told
that the children schooled alongside a Barney McKevitt of Carlingford, who in the 1980's owned McKevitt's Hotel in the village. In 1928, the family moved back to Glasgow.
I'm seeking any information, and in particular about Albert's job, the schools attended by the children (who would have been aged 13, 9, 8,2 in 1920) and anything of interest.
Many thanks for your help.
