A Welsh resident is asking his extended Carrickfergus family to get in touch.

Shane Finan, from Llanelli, has already had a response to an earlier appeal for information on his great-great grandmother, Greenisland woman Susan Smyth.

“Susan’s son David and his wife Philomena had five children: Laura, Brenda, Carmel, Brian and Kieran,” he said.

“I’m their first cousin’s grandson, I’ve been doing research and I’d like to get in touch so that we can share info and reconnect the family after so long not being in touch.

“I’m very grateful to everyone who helped.”

Shane can be contacted at or by phone on 07955889027.
