McMullan - Wylie - March 9th, 1911, at St. John's Church, Newcastle, Co. Down, by the Rev. Otway Woodward, Rector. Joseph H., son of the late David H. McMullan and Mrs. Barry, Rockland Villas, Newcastle, to Annie, daughter of the late James Wylie, Dunmurry, Co. Antrim
2) Reminiscences - Fair is Lisburn on the Lagan, Where the curfew rings at nine;
Fair the river rolling northward, Far along the old track line.
In the dreary nights of winter, When the lights of Millbrook shine,
Mystic shadows seem to linger, Far along the old track line.
Lofty are the groves of Wilmount, Rich the pastures of Lismoyne;
Charming is the view of Nature, Far along the old track line:
Where the bells of Ballylesson, Often ring their well-known chime,
With a grand reverberation, Far along the old track line.
Oft the village hind and maiden, Ramble in the summer time,
Where the chestnut spreads its blossom, Far along the old track line.
Time is passing, rolling onward, But these charms shall still be mine;
Memories of the times I wandered, Far along the old track line.
Henry Hu?, ??  Low? Road, Lisburn
3) Marriage - Blakely - Herdman - May 22, at Lambeg Parish Church, by the Rev. Benjamin Banks, M.A., John Blakely, son of John Blakely, Glenmore, to Ethel R. Herdman, daughter of the late Robert Herdman, Collin

(Mr. W. H. Toft, Messrs. Wm. Toft and Sons, Ltd., Inchicore, Dublin, wrote: "We have pleasure in submitting the following tenders for permits for amusements on the north-end of the Esplanade. (a) Season 1939, 2,050, with one week for church fund or other charity. (b) With option of renewal for ? years, 2,230." from Wicklow People, January 1939)
(For the past few weeks Messrs. Wm. Toft & Sons amusements have been open on the Fair Green, Longford. Undoubtedly the chief attraction is the Electric Picture Palace attached, in which, at both houses nightly, are shows, some very fine dramatic, comic and educational films. There are some films on the market of rather a questionable character, but from what I have seen, Messrs. Toft take extra care in the selection of their subjects - Result - Delighted large and appreciative audiences all the time.  - from Longford Journal, November 1912 Source: British Newspaper Archive (thank you to Grace Harvey for finding these clippings)
