(Democratic Unionist Party - Constituency: North Belfast).
A personal blog in which I comment on a wide variety of issues, political, cultural, social, historical and religious. If something takes my attention, then I may well comment on it.

My constituency office is on the Ballysillan Road at the corner of Ballysillan Park. I was interested therefore to discover on an old map that Ballysillan Park was once known as Stoney Loaney. This is another of the Ulster-Scots placenames that were once common in the area.
