Lisburn Exiles Forum

(Site is no longer operational pending a major long overdue overhaul of the entire website. Thank you for your patience. Site should still be visible and searchable for old posts.)

The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

pre-trip notes

I seem to be Dabbler or Joe depending whether I’m in Explorer or Netscape. I’m not sure if the wife will let me escape. Does Mr Brandon let you loose?

I vaguely remember a lad a few years older than me called Joe Speers, who was at school while you were there. Tough boyo. Bertie Fitsimmons kept him in check though, with the help of a long cane!

Re: pre-trip notes

I noticed today a Geraldine Gorman on the Exiles page. I well remember her very nice mum, Eileen, who worked in the Island mill, as does Beano, I’m sure.
That’s it folks. Hope to be in touch in a few days time.

I have been in touch with Geraldine and told her of knowing her mum and aunt Sally.
I lost your e-mail address when my computer crashed a few months ago, so I wasn't able to let you know anything.
