Family appeal

AN English man has made an appeal for help in tracking down a Glengormley family.

The appeal for the McKeever family has been issued by English man John McKeever who is interested in tracking them down as part of a family history project.

He told the Times: “I believe Richard and Bridget McKeever lived in Carwood Avenue as did Richard’s father John.

“I have been told Richard had a sister called Collette, and possibly two other siblings.

“Richard left Glengormley and moved to London and married Bridget Kavanagh in 1940. They later moved back to Newtownabbey and the Carwood family home.

“If anyone has any information, it would be greatly appreciated.”

John can be contacted by email on
