    Default J McNamara MV Harcliff

    I am trying to locate an old shipmate from 1961 who I sailed with on the Harcliff.
    His name was John McNamara. He was an Irishman from Cork and I know that his previous ship was the " Irish Larch"
    Any replies would be much appreciated.

    Hello Paul
    As you have got that Crew List now (well I hope so) then on that it will give the last Address recorded for
    John McNamara,now again a long shot but possibly there is a way to try trace him from that?? I had a similar problem quite some time ago,and wrote to the address given,to be surprised at the nice reply which after a search on the reply found my Friend so who knows!??
    Cheers and best of British as they say! LOL

    Would you know anyone here?? Some Irish Larch Crew

    Hi Doc
    Thanks for the advice. I will send a letter to the address in the crew list and see what happens.
    Also thanks for the Irish Larch info and pic. No I didn't recognize anyone.
    Paul
    I'll keep you informed

    Possibly also worth a letter to a few editors ?

    The one I have used most is the Southern Star.

    The Southern Star is a family owned, progressive local
    newspaper company covering West Cork and the surrounding areas.

    Your Community, Your West Cork, Your Southern Star - Contact Us

    One of my own inputs in the Cork press below and they have several
    papers Cork way, suggest something for the letters page, hope this is of help.

    Your Community, Your West Cork, Your Southern Star - Seeking support from Kinsale for paddle steamer project

    Fingers crossed.

    Keith.

    I will e.mail a good friend, until last year he was the senior reporter for
    the Southern Star, now retired. Will at least find out some other best
    contacts for the area.

    Regards,

    Keith.
