Funeral of Mr. James Barron


January 5, 1939
The funeral took place yesterday from “The Lodge,” Sommerton Road, Belfast, to Carnmoney Cemetery of Mr. James Barron, whose death occurred on Tuesday. Mr. Barron was for many years a prominent figure in the business life of the city and was a former member of the Belfast Corporation. He was in earlier years a clever footballer, being “capped” seven times for Ireland.

The chief mourners were the immediate relatives, and the attendance also included a number of members of the Belfast Corporation, his old football associates, and brethren of the Masonic Order.

Messrs. Thomas Johnson & Sons, Ltd., 43, Bedford Street, Belfast, had charge of the funeral arrangements.
