    I need to abuse the comments section today. Do any of you have access to the marriage records of the presbyterian church in Lisburn? Railway St, I think. 1st presbyterian is online and threw up a blank.

    It's cobbled - it must be either a courtyard or else reasonably central.

    The nearest thing the NIAH comes up with is Coolmore crossroads, which isn't it.

    If it's genuinely in Kinsale, I think it's gone now. Not that Mason's locations are always reliable, mind you. It's pretty dilapidated though; I'd go with gone.
