THE FACEBOOK page showing old photos of families and places in Sligo has seen its membership rocket through the roof.
Page administrator Adrian O’Neill confirmed last night that the page now has just under 10,000 members.
This is up from just 600 in December, he added and revealed where most members live.
No surprise that Sligo tops the list with Dublin, London, Galway, Dromahair and New York make up the top six, in that order.
Angeles in America, Vancouver in Canada, Cape Town in South Africa and
Brisbane in Australia all have active pockets searching the Sligo
European cities like Glasgow, Paris, Liverpool and
emigrant centres such as Corby in England and Boston in the States are
all in the mix too.
The page administrator has
also interest in the Sligo site from places like Perth in Western
Australia and the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean Sea.
