Book Description

Records the reunion of the Blee descendants at Altishane Primary School in June 2018 and shares historical photos and documents of the Doherty/Blees and the Herbert/Blees. The reunion was prompted by a book, Living and Learning in Altishane, written by Geraldine Conwell, Headteacher of Altishane Primary School. The documents include details of a family member who was a republican internee on the prison ship SS Argenta and of Maggie Blee and Annie Blee who were raised on the McCrory farm in Altishane in the 1920s and 1930s.
