I came across this photo in the Ulster Star quite a few years ago I was very much aware of it as it hung in my Grandparents home in the early 40s as my uncle Harry is in it, then one day quite a few years ago sitting with the staff in the Niagara Jimmy Lewis asked me did I know anyone in it. I was aware of three individuals, for some reason I must have cut the photo out of the star and came on unexpectedly while going through old photos so I took it to my Uncle Bobbie Rooney (Bricklayer & Fair Dart Player) and he filled in the rest some Christian names are missing and some nick names are used, I hope this doesn't give offence .
