Bobby Cosgrove: Local Historian: East Belfast

Bobby Cosgrove is an East Belfast man–born and raised in the Willowfield area.  He has a vast historical knowledge of that area and has a particular interest in the period around the First World War.  He has written many articles on all aspects of life in the East of the City and is in great demand throughout the country to share his stories..  In the coming weeks longkeshinsideout plan to print some of those stories here.  Some will be about everyday life in Belfast in the years gone by–there will be reminisces from his own childhood–tales of the myriad of characters from years gone by and others from a historical perspective dating back a hundred years or more.  Hopefully some of the articles we upload will reach a new audience and give Bobby the coverage he deserves.
