When families are meeting over the Christmas time and remembering times past, if something of a historical nature is discussed, please make a note of it and pass it on to members of the History Group. Our next project is to record as many items of historical interest in the Moorock, Bellair, Boher, Castlearmstrong and Leamonaghan areas as possible.
