About One Irish Rover

One Irish Rover focuses on the history and the people of the area in Northern Ireland where I grew up. Notably, the Portglenone, Kilrea, Maghera, Bellaghy, Innisrush and Tamlaght areas, in Counties Derry and Antrim.

My mother took many photographs and saved loads of old newspaper cuttings. Many of these appear on this website. My grandparents also had a fascinating archive of old family photos.

I am also delighted to receive your old photos and stories. Do drop me a line, via the ‘contact’ link on the top menu.

Many thanks for all your contributions.

Best regards,


One Irish Rover - Northern Ireland, bringing history to life
