Christened at Leswalt Church

LITTLE James Muir was christened at Leswalt Church on Sunday, 9th September.

The following day, the 11-month-old tot headed back home to New York with his parents Tom and Rosalind Muir.

Dad Tom (33) was brought up in Stranraer but now works at a university in the city which was shattered by terrorists last week.

Thankfully, the Muirs were unhurt in the atrocity, but the rest of the family back in Stranraer faced an agonising four-hour wait before news of their welfare filtered back across the Atlantic.

This week, James' grandparents, George and Cathy Muir spoke to the "Free Press" about how the dramatic events unfolded from their point of view.

They watched with horror as the news came through on the television at their home in Stranraer's Mayfield Avenue.

Just two days previously they had waved goodbye to Tom, Rosalind and James, following the christening at Leswalt.
