Hi Sinead

Interesting information. I tried to find out some more on what you say, to no avail.

Would you be able to elaborate on that, please.

Regards

The incident was reported in both the Irish Independent and Irish Times. I think Grammer may have posted
an article on this site about it but I don't know how to search for it. Grammer/Strum come in and give us a
dig out.
In the blowing up two sets of brothers were injured and two sisters who were walking along the road were
also injured.

You can do a search for it on http://www.irishnewsarchive.com/.
For €10 you can spend a full 24-hours searching.
For me, I found more about my family origins in one day on that than in all other sources put together
Note: This archive does not include the Irish Times.
Fro the Irish Times archive, go to the Irish Times website

Hi

Thanks for the link to http://www.irishnewsarchive.com/,Gulliver. I took out a 24 hour subscription but could not find any reference to Sinead's info re the Birney's from Dalkey and the Crossley Tender incident.

Also took out a 7 day subscription to the Irish Times archives, and once again there was no reference to the above, ach well, not too worry.

In saying that, I did uncover a great article regarding my Great Great Uncle, Luke Birney from Dun Laoghaire from 1886. Apparently Luke was a well known sailor in the area and was hired out to assist well-off Anglo-Saxons when it came to sailing jaunts between Howth and Dun Laoghaire. To cut a long story short their yacht hit trouble, and one of the young Englishmen fell overboard and drowned and it was only a passing Steamer that saved them and towed them into Dun Laoghaire Harbour. It's a long story, but formyself, it gives me an insight into my family origins.

I also came across a few Birney's from Bray in the newspaper archives, at the moment I'm sure their is a family history link between my Birney's of Dun Laoghaire and Bray, but I am currently trying to establish that, all good fun!

Think I have stated before that there is a strong maritime connection with my Birney's. My GGGrandfather John Birney, 1820 - 1897 was a diver from Dun Laoghaire, my GGrandfather, Francis Birney was a Harbour pilot (turns out he was a hobbler!), and his Brother Luke Birney, sailor, all born and lived in Dun Laoghaire.

The search continues and I was also wondering if the name Birney or Berney is still around in the area.

Kind Regards
Davy57

You are getting in deep into your family history.

Have you downloaded the free guide "Tracing your Irish Ancestors"
http://www.discoverireland.ie/Things-To-Do/Arts-Culture-and-Heritage/Ireland-through-the-Ages/Tracing-Your-Ancestors and download the .pdf there.

The definitive book on the subject is "Tracing Your Irish Ancestors" by John Grenham (4th edition recently published). Cost in Ireland is €23. I'm sure it is available from Amazon

Have you considered joining one of the societies. The Genealogical Society of Ireland is Dun Laoghaire based see http://www.familyhistory.ie

I will look for the article and give you exact date and page. I have seen both Independent and
Times reports in the National Library.

Papers I have read are Dublin Evening Mail, Saturday 27th January 1923, Sunday Independent 28th January, 1923, Irish Times Saturday 27th January 1923 and Irish Times Monday 29th January. The explosion happened on the night of Friday 26th. Driver Berney had wounds on his head and feet and was taken to the Meath Hospital.
Hope this helps your search.

Was at a funeral in Deansgrange today
Got to thinking there must be a better way.
What do they do in Hong Kong where they have virtually no spare land.
Here's the latest proposal there - a floating cemetery.

And here's the inside

I reckon that some people would be dying to get in, but if the custodians of Deansgrange went with that proposal to DLRCOCO, the proposal would be dead in the water.

Think of it as a cruise ship, of sorts, but for permanent vacationers.

In Hong Kong you can bury the body in a grave space for 7 years
then you get back the remains!

Maybe we could bring the old "Princess Maud" back to Dun Laoghaire Harbour, where she could cater for dead people, rather than the people who just wished they were dead when travelling on her many years ago.

Well said Skins , I remember watching a T V documentory a while ago about people up in the Himalaias(up near Everest) and they brought their dead to a special place in a bag and after prayers from the family one man in the village took the corpse and chopped it up and layed it out for the vultures to eat because the ground up there was so hard they could never bury them it was called a SKY burial.

Keeper posted the other day about his trip to Deansgrange and the gorgeous daffodils...so I went up on Monday....have to say the place was magnificent. Clean, tidy and bursting with Spring flowers. I met one of the graveyard lads and passed on compliments ..he was delighted and said they had worked very hard in December to ensure a good show of flowers now...Well done all the workers..we sometimes forget how much work it takes to keep such a big place going.

Keeper posted sometime ago about his visit to Deansgrange Cemetery and the lovely display of daffodils, someone then asked for a photo. Well I was up there on Saturday morning with my mother visiting my Fathers grave. Just took one shot with the phone of the beautiful display of Daffodils and colour.
