Thank you for sharing these old photos! I’ve just found my Great-Granda and his family online in the middle of some family history research. John Kearney, the carter from Malin Street and his family outside their house beside the Tullys, was my Granny Kearney’s father. Fanny, from the top right photo, went on to marry John Murray. The Murrays moved from Creeslough to Belfast in ’41. Great to see some home photos from Inishowen.
