His mother was English, originally from Leicester. She accepted the risks associated with living in the city. Thomas Finucane had ceased his political activism shortly before the couple married in October , and after Florence had converted to Catholicism. The job did not pay well, but the two managed on his meagre wages. Soon afterwards, Brendan and his mother were nearly killed when caught in the cross-fire between the controversial, mostly British temporary constables employed by the Royal Irish Constabulary— Black and Tans —and the Irish Republican Army IRA. The household was somewhat split over religious and political issues.

This special relationship has lasted for decades, with two generations of retired Underground trains migrating south, like people, to retire by the seaside. But this time round as replacements are sought once again, the apparently simple solution of buying in a third generation of time expired Tube stock looks less likely, as a host of other problems have come to the fore.
The problem is working out what comes next. The Island Line was electrified at the same time as, and had economies of scale with, the Bournemouth electrification project. Whilst the former had been specified to operate 7 car trains up to every 12 minutes, it has degraded significantly in recent years. What is Island Line? There are six intermediate stations, and the line is all that remains of a once island-wide railway network. Whilst the remainder closed to regular passenger service, the Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin section was electrified.

There were as yet no circuits from London to the cities in the north or west of Britain, only to the south and east. But there was a slow recovery. The strength of the British economy was such that it survived the Railway Mania, the money and the food panics with relative ease; although the reliance in Ireland on the potato crop was devastating to its population and that island’s economy.
The emergence of Louis Napoleon in and the subsequent creation of the Second Empire in France in stabilised the rest of Europe and restored economic harmony. The American war on Mexico was as short as it was brutal and its immediate effects on trade were equally brief. This stabilisation was assisted by the economic impact of immense new gold imports into Europe from California and Australia.

Retired railwaymen and steam fans gathered at Guildford railway station on Farnham Road bridge on Sunday July 9 for the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate Guildford’s engine shed that closed exactly 50 years ago. In his speech to around 40 people who gathered at the pedestrian entrance to the car park, Geoff Burch said – ‘It doesn’t seem that long ago when Pat Kinsella and I departed from here aboard our respective locomotives BR Standard Class 5 Nos and to go light-engines to Salisbury, not forgetting the other drivers and firemen who left here that day.
This occasion was originally an idea of another old steam colleague, Bill Moore, who thought it would be a good idea for a few of us to meet up here and go for a drink afterwards. However, Bill Bunce, Pat Kinsella and I put our heads together and came up with an idea which has ended up a full-blown plaque unveiling ceremony! Also I must thank the following people who have generously made donations towards the costs of the plaque; without them, it wouldn’t have been possible: Fortunately, we were still able to raise most of the funds as a result of the kind generosity of persons completely unconnected with the railway industry who genuinely believe that this place is still part of Guildford’s heritage.
Now a little bit about our invited guest Richard Greenwood. Rochdale-born and bred and with railways in his blood, Richard attended the Law College at Guildford during whilst I was working here as an engine cleaner and young fireman. With a keen photographer’s eye, he captured hundreds of superb images of locomotives and I’m therefore indebted to Richard for his kindness in allowing me use a number of them in various books that I’ve self-published.
During the s Richard led local opposition to the Beeching Axe when, almost at a stroke, Britain lost thousands of miles of its rail network.

The Fifth Gospel, where, a few years ago, my primary focus would have been on all of the fascinating religious history and the close reading of the gospels contained therein something I, as an unbaptized pagan, am only passingly familiar with , and that would have made this an interesting, albeit verrrrrrrryyyyyy ssllloooowwwwlllllyyyyy ppppaaaacccccceeeddddddd read standard caveat: But, in reading this book now, at this point in my life, I was more drawn to the story of a single father struggling to raise his son and keep him safe and shielded from a lot of bad stuff.
And I kept getting really nervous and antsy. And hugging my son tighter when I put him to bed, or was up with him in the middle of the night when he was upset. It was an odd reading experience. Not a bad one, mind you—just odd to be so pulled out of the story by the author doing a good job of making one of the characters so utterly relatable. He just ate those innocent villagers because his tummy was rumbling!
