The Currans at Port Bradden

The local historian, the Reverend McConnell Auld - Con Auld - spends much time at his old mill-house, in the picturesque hamlet of Port Bradden in County Antrim.

Mr Auld has written numerous books, one of them entitled Letters to a Causeway Coast Millhouse.

Chapter 16 - A Letter from a Grieving Mother - concerns Lady Curran, whose son, Michael, bought a cottage at Port Bradden. They holidayed there between 1961 and 1968, in fact; and would have been well acquainted with Con Auld.

Lady Curran's husband was the Rt Hon Lord Justice Curran, and Sir Lancelot was a Lord Justice of Appeal in Northern Ireland until the mid 70s.
