I haven't come across a map which shows MACDONALD'S ROW, but I spoke today with someone from Dalry who says the houses were located on the Dalry/Kilbirnie Road at Borestone (the B780 today). There is one map I know of which shows what I think is the layout of the houses and adjacent pits, quarries, etc.

I also note from the 1937 Postal Directory that eleven families were listed as living at the location at that time: -

No. 02 Thomas King;
No. 03 John Greenan;
No. 04 Francis Fitzpatrick;
No. 05 William Guffie;
No. 06 Elizabeth Mackay;
No. 07 Patrick Kennedy;
No. 08 Margaret B. Houston;
No. 09 Patrick Borland;
No. 10 Hugh Walsh
No. 12) Catherine Mooney
No. 13) -do-
No. 15) Mary Grealiss.

I have some further detail, including a "cut and paste" from the map mentioned, which I can give you if you send me an email address via the 'private message' system.

Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.
