Texas Man Pleads Guilty After Failing to Report Wife’s Fraud Scheme

Allison Tussey —  July 10, 2006 — 176 Comments

Clyde Parrish, 56, Athens, Texas pled guilty to one count of misprision of a felony in the federal court for the Eastern District of Texas.

According to information presented in court, Parrish’s wife, Julia Parrish, had devised a scheme to defraud investors by encouraging them to invest in real estate in Ireland that Julia Parrish claimed to own, but did not. As a result, she pled guilty to wire fraud and was sentenced to 27 months imprisonment on October 12, 2005. Although Mr. Parrish was aware of his wife’s scheme, he provided false information when interviewed by the FBI on July 14, 2004, concerning his wife’s scheme, and thereafter failed to notify authorities that his wife was committing fraud.

Parrish faces a sentence of imprisonment up to three years and a fine up to $250,000. A sentencing date has not been set.

  1. BFTP

    Really???? Even in light of recent events you still post drivel???? Talking in riddles and never coming forward!! Time to get a new hobby sicko or get out more!! They are DEAD! Now go and get a life.

    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.

  3. Did anyone else read in the papers that the notes they left were dated 14th March? Does that mean this was the ‘supposed’ time of death? It seems very fishy that within the last month 1) Tom had been spotted (unconfirmed) / there has been reports of smoke coming from their chimney / and a person was manually blocked from one of their Twitter accounts (April 22).

    Also a big issue for me is the fact that loads of reports have been made to the Gardai within recent weeks / months about this woman’s whereabouts and nothing was done. She was wanted by the PSNI / FBI and despite reports made (eg Soairse Foundation etc etc) the Gardai can’t even bring her in for questioning? Something is not right here.

  4. She is dead,and by the looks of it taken out tom aswell

    • so was the BFTP and if so, she was on here April 18, i honestly believe she killed tom and then later herself..poison is a womans choice weapon…. i believe she finally saw there was no way out.. rumor is there is a 20 page letter in which she names people who have wronged her and toms part is about 1/2 page… he is guilty in conning as he knew she didnt have cancer and he knew they weren’t making honey, but i would love to know how they came to be, how did they meet, was he a vulnerable bachelor/farmer and in she came like a breath of fresh air? i worked along side them and irish bee sensations doing different markets, sweet as honey, i got the same story, she was in texas for 20 years, failed to mention last two were compliments of the state.. she had ovarian cancer, when i asked prognosis it was she had completed chemo and just waiting to die.. in three years, i never suspected, but was never asked for money, im completely gobsmacked but i believe she was BFTP, as i can’t believe with recent news BFTP isnt here to be heard? and if so again, posted here april 18, i believe murder suicide, not suicide pact!

  5. She is dead hopefully read the article Couple found dead in limerick

  6. CantsayImsorry May 18, 2015 at 10:14 am

    Just heard that the couple found dead in the house in Limerick are Tom and ‘Croein’. Apparently the bodies have been there for some time… The police hasn’t officially confirmed this but its been whispered by more than one person at the source…

  7. Hi everyone, I am doing the blog because the police seem to be ignoring people when they report her so she has time to escape. I need her history for her time in Northern Ireland. I know there was a second bigamist marriage and have been told she was imprisoned in the 70’s but need someone to come forward to fill in the blanks – if you want your name kept out of it that is fine, as long as you agree to speak to the police if they want to speak to you. There is ALWAYS an element of truth in her lies so we need to get them all online to make it harder for her to con anymore people while waiting for the police to catch her.

  8. Hi Concerned! Yes I am, I’ve been speaking with Amethyst, it’s a good idea! I like the way she put them together in a factual way. The stories are getting increasingly even more shocking!

    What bothers me is the FACT that she’s knowingly creating aliases with intent to fraud services and businesses, and the Garda are saying this is a civil case? I’m not 100% up to date on the law but should we go to a solicitor and ask them to push criminal proceedings? If she’s on the run in NI is Ireland obliged to deport her? With her proven track record and previous convictions (over 20 in NI alone) is that still not enough for Garda to at least bring her in for questioning?

    Totally agree Bloodhound! She’s after setting up an Events business now with obvious intent to screw more people over!!! This woman has no limit to how low she will go. The fact that she fakes cancer and tried to scam a children’s charity makes my blood boil!!

    • Shocked
      Yes sadly there is a fine line between criminal and civil in fraud cases. Also Fraud can also overlap with Theft. She is more than likely aware of all this as she has been doing it that long. Maybe the whole scaming this last 5 years is much to complex for the relevant authorities to be bothered with as it is only ordinary people, and small businesses that are being affected. So they are not to bothered. I have not been scamed by her myself but I know someone who was.I know this person is relying on the PSNI to catch her. As there is nothing they can do. Maybe people who have been scammed need to look into the legal side of things and work together so that they cannot be fobbed of. One thing though the ‘Witch/High Priestess’ who asked positive energy to be sent to her as all these ‘bad’ people were sending her negative energy. Well a lot of good people are a putting a lot of good energy into her being caught and her having to face up to all the hurt and loss, she has caused people.

  9. Some of the comments about their whereabouts are starting to worry me now! Please don’t tell me that most of her fraud comes under civil law so she can’t be touched!!!! She’s wanted by the PSNI and FBI, are the Garda happy to have a wanted criminal openly walking around flaunting the bloody law???? Bloody rediculous!!!!!

  10. I’m totally astonished that the Garda have done nothing about this. Is the fact that they’re deliberately frauding businesses and charities enough? The fact that she’s wanted by the PSNI and currently on the run should be enough to bring her in for questioning at least? I think there’s an awful lot of concerned people here, it would be great if one of the Garda would leave their contact details on this page? Do we have to get onto solicitors to push criminal charges or are the Garda going to advise us? After all we’re all paying taxes and deserve a point of contact. Do we have to get onto the media to push the Garda into responding??

    For me, Tom has been involved just as much as her, he backed up all her stories on a phone call to me – I even questioned him about “Chrissy” from South Africa and he got really nervous and swiftly avoided the subject. Their business isn’t registered so I doubt they were paying tax. Also Tom stated he was on social welfare.

    • Sherlock
      Are you aware that there is a time lime and blog being put together. Would be brilliant if everyone who has commented on this blog contacted the people who are creating the new one privately with their stories. Then the evidence is all there for the PSNI and the Garda.

  11. I know some of the fraud up north co antrim area I know of the man she married in carrickfergus, I am astonished that she had been able to get away with so much we were probably some of the 1st people to go to the psni, what angers me so much is that the police can be so dismissive if her and say that most of her fraud is more a cival case.

    • The fact that there is a Warrant out for her arrest in the North is a good enough reason for the Garda to pick her up and question her, and I expect arrest her. If Garda could find Tom Ruttle, there is a good chance they will find julie Ruttle aswell.

    • Very sad Josie I know they way the law works, but surely when this person has been doing tis from the 70’s and was not long out of jail until she was at her work again. That is being done deliberate and with intent. Surely that would have to be theft or you would like to think it would be seen like that in law.

    • Can you message me at pagoth76@gmail.com please, I think you can help me fill in the blanks!

    • Can you message me at pagoth76@gmail.com please Josie, I think you can help me fill in the blanks!

  12. Just had a look at amethyst’s blog, interesting read! Looking at the pictures tho makes me laugh! “You can put a wig on pig but its still a pig” lol! Concerned, I’m sure your right, but why isn’t this national?? Surely the better the coverage and accurate up to date details may just enable someone to spot them! Assuming he is with her of course!!

    • Had a look at the Amethyst’s blog. Very interesting read and lots more to be added I am sure. I hope people who have commented on this blog will come forward and support them in what they are trying to do.
      Where was their brand honey being made and bottled?
      As you say lots of questions
      He must have been very gullible or naive !!!!
      The blonde wig was a bit skew whiff at times and I would have thought she could have afforded a better quality one considering the money she was scamming out of people.
      I think she gets some sick sort of pleasure out of this when you look at the different names she calls herself. HOLMES and DR WATSON, Then to marry someone on April Fools Day ……You couldn’t make it up.

  13. My thoughts exactly!! How could he not have known??? One bee hive and she’s manufacturing honey at a rate of knots!! The baby thing is most worrying tho!! Who or what is buried there? Surely a death certificate would be required? An undertaker, stonemason, grave digger etc. would all have been required? Is he at his home or has he vanished to? What car or cars are they using? So many questions!!!!!!!!!!

    • Bloodhound

      Indeed. very simple questions. More than likely didn’t need a death certificate as it was ‘miscarried’
      No doubt she used her ‘Witch/High Priestess’ delusions to cover up from using an undertaker etc.
      Wouldn’t be surprised if it was an empty box that is buried
      Then got some stonemason to do the Head stone which she more than likely didn’t pay for if she was true to form
      Serious Psychotic if you want my opinion
      Do keep doing this all her life without remorse or guilt speaks volumes about the person she is.
      Seems to use the same sort of stories and just tweaks them a little
      PSNI AND THE Garda really need to get to work!!!!!!

      • Yes I do agree with you that the Garda could do a bit more. They do drive cars, so could be tracked down that way. The PNSI were doing their bit in the North, but when they moved South,it went out of the PNSI control. Yes more exposure in the newspapers, and maybe crimeline on RTE may alert people more. The least I expect is that they be question by Garda to their activities. Simple questions like, were they Tax/VAT compliance in the business. Was their honey production Health Board approved. By running off and not paying their bills for goods and services they received, to me makes them just as gulity as robbing a Bank. If they robbed a Bank, the Garda would be looking for them straight away. They seem to have left the house in Askeaton

  14. Never heard of 60 year old woman in my life having a baby. How people fell for this is quite scary!!!!!!!!

  15. Well done to Amistyst Storm for listing all scams the Julie Ruttle ( or what ever here real name is) got up to. But what im really astonished by, is the death of Tom and Julie’s baby. Is there anyone out there knows anything about the death of their baby. What hospital was she in? What stone mason made the headstone? was there an undertaked involved? If they lost their baby, well im sorry for their loss. But if the story is made up to fool people for sympathy ,and there was no baby born, its as low as a person can get. It would prove to me, that Tom Ruttle was involve in her scams as much as she was. After all, it was his family grave yard was used.

  16. I was reading this article and thought Julie Ruttle “fans” might be interested. I wonder who her Italian cousins are?

    Amazing Amarenas
    When Croén Ruttle’s Italian cousins heard that she loved cherries, they said they’d send her some – and 25 kilos of plump, dark Amarena cherries arrived from Sicily. Ruttle and her husband Tom feasted on the cherries, then preserved the substantial remainder in honey from their own beehives, which they’ve been maintaining for 30 years.
    “After a few months we took some cherries out, added Bunratty Potcheen and left them for another few months.” The results were so delicious that Amarena cherries in honey and potcheen have been added to the range of preserves, also made with honey, heather honey and honey infused with ginger, that the couple produce in Kinsale, Co Cork.
    The Amarena cherries can be eaten as they are – “we have had people buy them and walk away eating them out of the jar”, Ruttle says – and are very good with ice-cream, or chocolate cake, or dropped into sparkling wine. You’ll find them, along with Bee Sensations honey and preserves, at marketdirect.ie. The cherries cost €7 and can be delivered nationwide.

  17. This is the Officer tasked with finding her. If you have any contact numbers or addresses for her please send them urgently to david.cameron2@psni.pnn.police.uk

    or if you don’t want to speak to the police, contact Jilly Beatie j.beattie@mgn.co.uk who is in contact with the police.

  18. Taken in Bouliglass, Askeaton, Limerick in August 2011


  19. Croen and Tom also used Neven Maguire and the charity BUMBLEance for promoting their honey products. Neven used to buy the products and stock them in his restaurant.

    She’s been parading herself in the media with awards for “shop bought honey”!! Why can’t the Garda catch this woman??

    I see journalists and PSNI leaving their contact details here, but no Garda has left theirs?

  20. Does anyone have any info on the car she’s been using? ie make, model, colour etc? Also does it carry Irish or uk plates?

  21. BLASTFROMTHEPAST April 14, 2015 at 9:47 am




  22. I’ve just read these latest posts and it is absolutely asinine that she has one again evaded capture. How is this even possible?? I mean, her photo was literally posted online with her business information! Do the authorities even care that she is continually conning even MORE innocent people? Please feel free to contact me at kim@kimberlyparrish.Com.

  23. This is the only platform that i can voice my anger,contacted the authorities,cantacted 2 newspapers over there, sent nnumerous emails and still no contact from anyone,how can this woman get away with this,through my only silly trusting soul i now have NO CHANCE OF OWNING OUR OWN HOME,MY TEENAGE KIDS WILL NEVER GO TO COLLEGE,I MYSELF WILL HAVE TO WORK TILL IM 80 JUST TO GET ANYWHERE, HOPE YOUR HAPPY JULIE RUTTLE PARRISH HOLMES OR WHATEVER YOUR BLOODY NAME IS,YOU DESTROY LIVES….and now i hear your trying to get to france!!!!!,go with with god lady because he will never receive you,LOSER PARISITE. .

  24. First of all, I’m very sorry to hear all the stories and cons this woman has committed to her family and people. I’m sure she has seriously destroyed or harmed some lives. From running around with wigs saying she has cancer, robbing the social security number of a dead child in Ohio, scamming people out of their savings and on, and on – this woman needs to be locked up for a long time and people need to start feeling some retribution.

    If everyone who’s been frauded by this person could list all her alias names and possibly post links of images of this woman. I’m sure there are a tonne of people who have been scammed that aren’t on this page commenting, so by listing her various alias names Google Search will pick it up, making it easier for everyone who’s been wronged to find this information.

    From my own research she seemingly has used the following aliases:
    Julia Holmes
    Celia Holmes
    Julia Parrish
    Dr Watson
    JJ Watson
    Celia Holmes
    Christine Holmes
    Celia McKettrick
    Julia O’Neill
    Julia Ruttle
    Jules Ruttle
    Croéin Ruttle
    Créon Ruttle
    Croein Ruttle
    Croén Ruttle (yes she misspelt her own name multiple times! – Spelling and grammar are not her strong points)

    Links to her image – http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/serial-fraudster-on-run-for-two-years-29246744.html

    Can people find more pics online and post them up here?

    What about a list of her businesses?

    For me, both Julia / Jules (Croéin, Jules, Celia) and Tom Ruttle have played the same role in trying to scam me. From what I gather, they’re scamming people throughout the mid-west of Ireland, particularity Cork, Kerry and Limerick. It’s actually amazing how the PSNI / Garda have done nothing at all, so let’s make everything easy for them. I’m sure with a little investigation and a few phone calls they can easily catch this woman, she’s actually not that smart at all.

    I looking forward to BFTP’s comment on this one!

  25. We stayed at that very house on our honeymoon,in last days of communication with her she said she was terminal, on terminal i can think of is a bull crap artist, and julie if you read this,i told you on the phone and ALL the texts ive saved,YOU WILL NOT GET AWAY WITH THIS!!!!,I WANT MY MONEY BACK

  26. Anyone interested in reading this….my wife and i stayed in her home with her new husband, THE BEE KEEPER!!,We were befriended on social media,i suffer ptsd from a major truck smash in 06,my naive self fell for all this woman,julie ruttle as she was known then,whilst we were in Ireland on our honeymoon she managed to extort 106 thousand aus doloars from my new wife and i saying it was for a investment portfolio in America,well after 3 years im only just in the last week finding out about this woman,im gutted at the extent of this evil person,and completely ashamed,please help…my email address is kentgreg@gmail.com..please help,i have recent photos and lots of credible information on this woman..

  27. Hi Kim,

    It seem as if though Alison and I have very simlar information. I would really appreciate a most recent photo or any photo of Julie. I have a couple of the and Tom Ruttle’s wedding as well as of her in particular. I would never have guessed that she is in her 60’s though and that is why I would like to make sure that the person spoken about here, is in fact the same Julie Ruttle that became my friend via Facebook some years back. I have two addresses in Ireland and a number but i have not tried calling it anymore as I stopped getting replies. Could anyone please end me some photos to cmask73@gmail.com If it is the same person, then I can tell her son and you, Kim, more. I hope to hear form anyone of you soon. Thank you.

  28. Hi, I was just about to contact the people on here to let them know about the woman I knew as Julie Greer, Julie Ruttle and now Croein Ruttle. We stayed with her and Tom who is a lovely fella but a bit slow, in Askeaton, Limerick in 2011. An awful lot of things didn’t add up. Their house was an absolute hovel but they where spending money like they were rich. While there, she told us the following:

    She had a Son in new zealand whose wife had been committed and they had 2 sons.
    She ran a printing company in Texas with her Husband who committed suicide by shooting himself in the head when he found out he had cancer.
    Her twin sister died as a child choking on a sweet.
    She had a Doctorate in Criminal Psychology.
    She was a High Priestess Witch who ran a coven of over 40,000
    She was allegedly 3 months pregnant while we were there
    Her names on facebook where: Silver Light Ruttle, Whitewolf QuietSpirit

    Something just didn’t add up with her and when we got home we decided to break all ties with her. Next thing I knew, she was pretending to be Tom on facebook saying that I was an evil witch and I was casting black magic spells on his wife who was now miscarrying their baby. This is the grave of the baby I killed using black magic!


    While we where there she was absolutely adamant that any pictures or video we took must never go on facebook and I found that strange.

    Then I found her again, now using the name Croen and Croein Ruttle and she was living in Kinsale, Cork. Their business Irish Bee Sensations is multi award winning and she has managed to con a lot of high profile people and charities into believing her new stories which are:

    Her sister Crissy was running their Twitter account while Julie battled cancer.
    She and Tom have been married for 30 years despite the fact he has 2 young sons.

    This is Julie in a blonde wig, the only picture you will get of her – the rest are of Tom.


    I knew something had happened to them when she made her twitter page private so I decided to tell her business associates what I knew – she closed both her twitter and web site down.

    Just by chance, one bloke I was talking to made a comment that Croein had just messaged him from this twitter account https://twitter.com/eventsrmember

    If you go on my twitter account https://twitter.com/liser_jones you will see a picture of her that I posted from our visit. You can contact me there if you need me to tell you anything else. I want that evil bitch punished for calling me a baby killer.

  29. BLASTFROMTHEPAST March 24, 2015 at 4:50 pm

    Has this wicked woman managed to avoid the long arm of the law again ?
    Has she managed to sting her latest victim i.e. the bee keeper ????? Has this man not informed the guarda and if not why not ???

    Time and time again I ask Why don’t the police on both sides of the border get their heads together and catch this wicked woman before she stings another victim

    You can be sure she has another one lined up.

    Good on you Alison for informing the Bangor police. Hopefully they will do something with your information provided. Please inform the guarda if you have not already done so.

  30. Hi Kim,
    My family and I only recently discovered who the woman who introduced herself as Julie really is! She has been living in Askeaton Co Limerick since February 2011 with her latest victim/husband, Thomas Ruttle. She has conned thousands so far, lost him his sons, family, friends and apparently miscarried two babies. She is currently saying she has cancer…she wears a wig, as a disguise I’m sure and is constantly changing the style of it. We wouldn’t be surprised If she faked her own death!
    We are worried she has done a runner as both of them won’t answer any calls and haven’t been seen in a while..:but there is still smoke coming from their chimney!
    Their business was Irish bee sensations and she was active on social media but it all seems to be shut down recently. We’ve reported all this to Bangor Police and are hoping to hear of a result soon.
    Get the b—-!!!

    • I just don’t understand how they can’t catch her! It’s beyond frustrating. She will never stop.

  31. BLASTFROMTHEPAST February 7, 2015 at 12:44 pm

    Its been nearly a full year since the last posting on this website.
    Can anyone tell me if this woman is still breathing and conning everyone she meets ?

  32. This message has quite clearly been left by Julia Holmes herself!!! I had the misfortune to know Julia Holmes and she is a money grabbing thieving liar who wouldn’t know how to do an honest days work or earn an honest wage. Every word out of that woman’s mouth is a downright lie.

  33. Hello,

    There haven’t been any postings lately. Julia is my EX-Stepmother. I have been as helpful as possible with the PSNI but haven’t heard anything back. Does anyone have an update?

    Short of the BBC and a few other sources, I have been able to location any information from the States.

    She most recently attempted to contact me through Facebook, but that trail went cold.

    Kim Parrish

  34. Unlike many of you I was never conned by this women. I did know her when she was living in the states. I worked with her and her husband at that time. I always knew she was a shady person. Always out spending money I KNEW she didn’t make selling mobile homes. From what I understand her stepchildern at the time also knew she was shady cause she was always starting issues between them and their father. When she wanted she was a lovely person and would give you the shirt off her back but more times than not she was very rude and didn’t have the time of day for you unless you were male and had money then she was sweeter that maple syrup. I really hate that she had her husband at the time so blinded that he would get caught up in her lies and deceit. He really did care alot about her and would do anything for her. I do agree with everyone else and beleive that BFTP is Julia or knows her really well and keeping tabs for her. I am a true believer that she will get hers. Everyone faces judgement sooner or later. Lets just hope her is sooner.

  35. Anyone see the latest pic in The Sun?

    Hopefully we will get some closure soon.

  36. Julia is too smart to be posting on this blog. I’m sure the PSNI could trace the posters if they could be bothered !! But you can bet your last dollar she is watching this intently.
    Like myself you were smart enough to see through her wicked and evil ways. Its a pity despite all my warnings no one seems to be taking heed. Another victim is lined up, that i can be sure of. My sympathy is running out for the idiots who get cleaned out by her…its their own naive fault.

  37. Too Smart for HER! February 17, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    Omgosh!!!!!!!!! Why would they let her post bond in the first place??? After what happen in East Tx, I don’t understand this! She really tried to CON me, but I didn’t fall for it! I really hope they find her soon!!! May she rott in HELL!!! “Blast from the Past” if your are Julia, then you know who this is!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. BLASTFROMTHEPAST February 5, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I can’t believe that people along with the PSNI who regularly view this blog have stopped contributing to it. Have you all decided that she’s never going to be caught.

    Julia, Celia ,Jules,If you stayed and done your time,instead of skipping bail and taking flight two years ago you would be a free woman now,out walking the streets collecting you pension,but no you would rather spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder. Was it worth it ? Really ??

  39. Blastfromthepast February 4, 2013 at 4:18 pm


  40. Blastfromthepast February 4, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    Its been several days since my last posting and no one has made any comment or passed any remark..Why ???
    Have you all like the PSNI just decided to lie down and take it because this woman will never be caught ????
    I was thinking this morning about Jules. Perhaps we should spare her a thought. Imagine what it must feel like to be living in constant fear when walking down the street, doing the simple things in life like buying a newspaper or even drawing her pension..must be awful. The ironic thing is that Jules would now be out of Hydebank had she not took flight when she did.
    I wonder if Jules thinks to herself were the crimes worth this ? Hydebank isn’t like the prisons in Texas. Julia come out come where ever you are. I’m waiting to see you.

  41. Blastfromthepast February 4, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    why are my messages getting blocked ?

  42. BLASTFROMTHEPAST February 2, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    Several days have passed and no one has responded to the last comments i posted.. Perhaps you along with the PSNI have finally come to the conculsion that she will never be caught and are admitting defeat.
    Its hard to believe that Jules would be out from hydeband by now had she not disappeared when she did.
    But spare a thought for her. Imagine what it must be like not being able to walk down the street, buy a newspaper or even pick up her pension without living in a world of fear. I wonder is Jules when she is lying in bed at night has asked herself were the crimes worth this life ???

    Jules come out come out where ever you are.

  43. BLASTFROMTHEPAST February 1, 2013 at 11:00 am

    Ok. A few more days have passed and no one has come forward to give their ideas. It looks like everyone has accepted that this woman has got away with her crimes and is not going to ever get caught..I was just thinking to myself this morning that had she would be out of hydebank had she not jumped ship when she did. Oh well such is life.
    I wonder if she thinks her crimes were worth it. Being unable to walk down a street, buy a newspaper or even pick up her pension without living in fear. Jules come out come out where ever you are

  44. BLASTFROMTHEPAST January 29, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    Well here we are again…Two years down the line and the PSNI are no closer to catching the glamourous granny. Why dont all the people who were connedby this person contact their local PSNI snd put presure on them to find this individual or perhaps she is simply too smart for them. It seems that the publication of photos on the bbc have obviously done no good. They would be better casting their net further afield by contacting the police in the REPUBLIC. Perhaps they could be more successful
    This woman cant live on thin air. We all know how important money is to her. She either has to be working or someone is harbouring her closer than the PSNI think. Come on guys get the thinking caps on..

  45. Detective Michael Porter November 23, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    If anyone requires a point of contact from the Police that can supply reliable information in locating Ms Holmes please email the Detective in charge of the Belfast case to; Michael.Porter@psni.pnn.police.uk

  46. Police appeal to trace fraud suspect Julia Holmes

    Police issued a photograph in an attempt to trace Julia Holmes
    Police have appealed for help in tracing a woman who absconded after being charged with fraud totalling £18,000.

    Julia Holmes was released on bail but was supposed to return to Downpatrick Magistrates Court in January 2011.

    A warrant was issued for her arrest after she failed to come back to face charges of fraud by misrepresentation.

    Police believe she spent some time away from Northern Ireland but has now returned.

    A police spokesman said Ms Holmes was known to use false identities.

    She is described as being about 5ft 5in tall with blue eyes, and has been known to change her hair colour and style.

  47. I’ll be glad when she’s caught September 22, 2012 at 9:54 am

    I hope ur friends went to the police about her cos the more fraud charges against her the longer her sentence will be! She needs to be caught once and for all. Check out BBC News Northern Ireland, there’s a piece about her.

  48. KIM – it has been on the bbc northern ireland news live and on the web over the last 2 days so maybe the psni are finally doing something about it

  49. Give her head peace – – just because she has a rough time does NOT give her the excuse to willingly and knowingly rip people off to the tune of thousands of ££££s it seems to be a compulsion she has that she needs serious help for!!The friends off mine that she has conned take no comfort in her having a”hard life” This is NOT AN EXCUSE!!!

  50. Kim she has yet to be caught but the psni have finally upped their game and put it out on the news that they are searching for “juls” and appealing for help! the link is in the http://www.bbc.co.uk/news on the Northern ireland page, unfortunately they didnt mention hallf the things she has done to many of us as this might make people stand up and take more notice.

  51. Does anyone have any updates on Julia? This is her former step-daughter, and I am curious as to whether she has been caught yet. I hate to think that she is still free and causing mayhem. Thanks in advance.

  52. OMG. I am NOT that lying, thieving wretch of a woman. She made my life miserable for twenty years and I wanted to know if she had been caught yet.

    Blast From The Past is only confirming my suspicions that she is Julia.

    Anyone that would like to confirm my identity, please message me and I will happily provide you with my story.

    I hope she DOES show up here, I helped get her deported once and will be beyond thrilled to assist the government again.

  53. The last comment posted by States is Celia,Julia,Jules,trying to find out if the PSNI,or the GARDA,have any more info as to her wherabouts.I am sure someone out there is being conned at this time,why dont all the people that have been taken in by this VILE WOMAN GET TOGETHER AND MAKE THE POLICE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BORDER GET THEIR FINGER OUT AND CATCH HER ,BEFORE SOME OTHER POOR SOUL IS ROBBED BLIND AND LEFT IN DEBT AND DANGER.

  54. Is there really no further information on this person? I live in the States and have provided PSNI with information and photographs on several occasions and have never received follow up.

    I also provided (fairly) recent photographs to the Mirror, but am unsure if anything came of it, or not.

    Would appreciate any updated information.

    Thank you.

  55. Really? Well you have it now so I’m sure I’ll hear from you soon? That way you can tell me who you are away from the blog? I cannot fathom why you wouldn’t want me to know? Perhaps you can tell me that at least?

  56. BLAST FROM THE PAST December 15, 2011 at 11:56 am

    Contact Jilly Beattie at the Daily Mirror. Get her to publish Celia’s picture in the paper here, in the UK mainland and the ROI. When this happens im certain that someone will hand her in when they see her face in a publication.
    Paul, your Grandmother died in Beaconsfield nursing home now called the Marie Curie clinic in Belfast in 1970. Celia’s mother whose name i have long forgotten. Her maiden name was Holmes.
    Cecil McKettrick who raised Celia was not Celia’s father. He was a proper Gentleman who died in the mid 1970s. He suffered with a chest disorder.
    I knew your father was in the UDR. Your mother Celia told everyone that he was an NCO doctor. Until now i did not have your email address. I hope this information will be useful in your quest to what ever it is you seek.

    In relation to an earlier post by ‘Concerned’. Contrary to your belief, I am able to use my computer night or day when ever i so choose. Please stop being a twit. You’re not helping.

    • I just came by this by accident and see that you have information on Cecilia’s parents. Hope you don’t mind me asking but you say you have forgotten her mothers name, was it Lizzie or Daisy, does that ring a bell? Her mothers maiden name was Holmes but it is her first name I cannot remember, there were fourteen in the family. My friend is a cousin of Cecilia and is also seeking to solve the mystery. The older generation have now all passed away and noone remembers. She remembers when her mother died and she stayed with her family in Belvoir. Many thanks

      • Hi all, I am looking for information, well confirmation really of Cecilia’s parents names, we cannot remember if her mothers name is Daisy or Lizzie, could have been one of the others sisters but am convinced it was one of these two. Her mothers maiden name was Holmes but it is her first name we are not sure of, there were fourteen in the family. My friend is a cousin of Cecilia and is also seeking to solve the mystery. The older generation have now all passed away and noone remembers. She remembers when her mother died and Cecilia stayed with her family in Belvoir. Many thanks

  57. Hi Aoife,

    My e-mail address is paul.mcgookin@live.co.uk, hopefully speak soon. Also if anyone else has any info that would help catch this horrible individual I would greatly appreciate it! Blast From The Past, you have this address already so i’m not expecting a response from you. We all know why don’t we you deceitful b—-!!!

  58. Hi Paul, I don’t know how to contact you privately??

  59. Hi Aoife,

    We didn’t even know she had been at her work in the states! It wasn’t until a family member saw the article in the Belfast Telegraph that we were made aware that she was at it over there!After that we did a bit of digging and realised the FULL extent at what she had been up to!!! Beleive it or not after she was deported she started again over here and was caught over the salon fraud. She was sent to prision and needed a bail address so the deceitful bitch used her solicitor and the Salvation Army to track me down. She told them she was a wealthy business woman who had returned from America and wanted to find her long lost son!!! Needless to say they were informed of the truth and told in no uncertain terms that we wanted nothing to do with her! I’m absolutely disgusted that she has used my name, sending fake e-mails, setting up Facebook accounts and even telling people I had died of cancer when I was 13!!! She makes me physically sick! I know I had a Grandfather, when he died I don’t know? As for brothers or sisters i’m not sure, although I know she had visitors in the States whom she claimed where her Brothers!!! I also know nothing of my Grandmother. I beleive, like many others that she has partners in crime, also a very close female friend and thats who these people are. Be very careful posting on here as she uses it to gleen info to determine how close we and the Police are to finding her! You really should contact the Police and ask that your identity be kept out of any publications. Or contact Jilly Beattie at the Daily Mirror, she needs any help you can offer! She was right about my Father’s occupation but that was many moons ago although he was cut from the same cloth albeit not a thief! My Grandmother raised me as her own and I lost her to cancer when I was 13! After that I was passed around until I was 18 then basically left to it! Thankfully in the short time I had with my Grandmother I learned the value of morals!!!! Be very aware of other people who post on here, they are not who they claim to be but I guess you have figured that out!!! I won’t post again for the reasons previously stated but feel free to contact me privately if you need to. Take care.

  60. I havin had a chance to check this in awhile, first off “Give her head peace” are you off your trolley, yes everyone makes a few mistakes but we learn, Celia Holmes or as she was going by Julia O’Neill as I knew her deliberatily goes out to con people,its like groundhog day with her. BFTP you contradict yourself so many times, you give out to Paul for telling the truth and then you say she should be caught!! Tell us who you really are!! Yes def her picture should be in papers and i have thought about taken it but frankly i would be so mortified for people around my parish to rem me with her I think I wld never come out of my house!! Feeling great im just waiting for that day to come!

    Paul it makes me sick to my stomach the way she goes around speaking of you. I know her father is dead and she spoke of a dead brother, did she have another one and what of her mother? She told me your father was in the army? She oftem spoke of a best friend growing up and I actually think she was called Julia anyone hear them stories??

  61. Feeling Great!! December 7, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Concerned you dead right there!!! Her spelling was always as bad as her looks!!! She’s a loser, and roll on the day that court comes because we will all be sitting there! Also her game is to go to internet cafes and send fake emails especially pretending to be from her son Paul! Although your not as smart as some of us Julia! You thought you got rid of some family members but im like a rotwieiler, once i get my teeth into something i dont let go! Thats why my family went through hell but compared to some had a lucky escape! BFTP you are Julia, just admit it! But then again the Julia we all know and LOATH doesnt admit to anything! You talk in riddles for you speak no TRUTH!!! ROLL ON THE COURT DAY!! OMG i cant wait until we meet everyone that day!! Arent you going to feel it!!!! SHAME ON YOU FOR USING YOUR SON IN UR LIES!!!! MAY YOU ROT TO YOUR DEATH BED IN HYDEBANK!!!

  62. Blast From The Past.

    True to form! Never stung by her? How do you know so much about her and what she’s been up to over the years then? Bit of a strange hobby isn’t it? Is everything you claim to know not reason enough to go to the police? Noticed that you only post at certain times during the day. Limited access to the computer or do you have to wait until someone (probably your latest victim) is out? I am a VERY close relative to one of your victims, so no, I am not Jules as you say. We all know who is tho! By the way this is the proper spelling of “constructive”. Thought I should point that out as you have been quick to do so to others in previous postings! By for now CELIA JULIA MCKITTERICK! Oh! Love and Light lol!

  63. BLAST FROM THE PAST December 7, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Everything i have said is the truth. I have no reason to go to the police because i wasn’t stupid enough to get conned by this woman.
    You ask who am I ? who are you ??? perhaps you are Jules.
    Every answer i give has been the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me god.
    Perhaps you might have something constuctive to add ??

  64. Blast From The Past:

    Who are you? I have recently joined this forum and I like many others have noticed that you intentionally dodge questions? Why? Who are you? How are you linked to this horrible woman? I suspect like many others you are Julia or you are closer to her than you care to admit! What have you got to loose by stating what your role in this mess is? Claiming to have fed her son when he was a baby? Are you family or what? I also think you should be avoided at all costs. Have you, like the rest of us spoken to the Police? I have to say that i’m not expecting an answer, at least not an honest one anyway!!

  65. BLAST FROM THE PAST December 6, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    Isn’t it about time that someone contacted all the local and national papers in both the north and south and got this womans picture printed ?

    I know that this has been done in the Mirror but to no sucess. Anyone think about BBC Crimewatch ?? Getting her mug on the tv would make her panic.

    The PSNI and the guards should work together to get her caught.
    There are more men who have been conned out there who have never come forward through fear of their wives finding out. This is only the tip of the iceberg.

    P.S Celia at your age when they do catch up with you, you will spend the rest of your life rotting in the comfort of HMP.

  66. In time for Christmas dinner at Hydebank Hotel! We all hope

  67. getting close

  68. Dear Give er head peace

    Does the word bigamy mean anything to you??
    Have you ever stopped to consider the hurt and pain she has caused people least of all her son!!
    You wont find anyone else on here (apart from Blast from the past) ironically enough that has any sympathy for her but then i suspect you are one and the same!!

  69. Sounds like the Celia I knew and loathed!! Has your son, his wife and children benefited from the millions you have enjoyed over the years? Maybe he will get a Christmas card with back dated payments lol!! Paul keep your chin up sooner or later she will get caught! You are a much stronger man than she realises!!

  70. Hear, Hear Paul, we’re all behind you.

  71. BLAST FROM THE PAST December 2, 2011 at 3:25 pm


    How disappointed i am in your use of the foul language. There is no need. Its not big nor is it clever. You weren’t brought up that way to use it either. I am very disappointed in the way you talk about your father. As i said to you on the occassions that i met him, he was always both friendly and polite to me. One other thing i forgot to mention to you is I fed you several times when you were a baby. So please show a little respect and if you continue to use the foul and abusive language i may not reply to your next posting.

  72. BLAST FROM THE PAST November 30, 2011 at 4:25 pm


    Im now aiming this directly at you so that you are no further misunderstood and and so that you can no further misrepresent my previous postings.

    It was your mother who told me that your father was a doctor
    It was your mother who told me you lived in New Zealand and it was your mother who has been telling other people these same stories. You have misunderstood me. I am not trying to cause you further grief, I am not suggesting for one minute that you or your immediate family have any underlying medical issues. Furthermore, I have not stated at any point that you have.
    Paul I met your father several times. He is a decent man. And no I am not your mother.

  73. The only illness that woman has is being a liar and a cheat!!!!! If she is suicidal, let her get on with it!!!! What goes around comes around! Shes the devil in disguise and she will rot in hell for what she has done to people!!! Any friend of hers standing by her deserves to be with her!!! By the way Julia your plan to leave a certain somebody all the hurt & pain didnt work!!!! She had family to back her unlike you!!!!!!!!

  74. By the way meant to say Blast From The Past(Celia)you were given the opportunity to contact me privately because you claimed to be able to tell me so much? Why decline? We all know who you really are!! Grow a set and make it public knowledge if you really know so much because I, unlike you, have nothing to hide!

  75. give er head peace November 29, 2011 at 10:57 am


    Leave Julia alone. Everyone is entitled to make a few mistakes in their lifetime and i’m sure you have made many in yours.
    Over the years she has had a rough time with cheating husbands and the illness, you have twisted the truth and made her out to be a bad person. Shame on you. This poor woman is suicidal. STOP this nonsense.

  76. BLAST FROM THE PAST November 23, 2011 at 10:30 am

  77. BLAST FROM THE PAST November 22, 2011 at 5:05 pm


    It appears there has been a prob with this website for a while so no one has been posting on it until now. Could you give me an update or any further info regarding our friend.

  78. Blast from the Past. November 22, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    more to come

  79. unfortunatly she has done a number on alot of people, she is in ROI for at least 5 years with a few trips up north she has been at the dog track in Strabane and the last time i spotted her was only back in may, didnt know about PSNI till today, when i came across an article saying they wer looking for her after missing two court dates in January of this year!! oh and on her appar life coaching Peter Stringer and the Munster Rugby team. LoL.

  80. BLAST FROM THE PAST October 11, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    Well it was only a matter of time before she blotted her copy book again. I just hope she hasn’t conned any money out of her latest victim. Now it appears she is in the ROI surely the PSNI and the guards can work together and get this glamourous granny caught

  81. Oh and Julia if you are following this “Sister” bring it on… cause your days are numbered you, i am waiting for your day in court!!!

  82. OMG for some reason today i decided to look up this b—s name she nearly ruined my life, None of ye seem to know about all the scams she pulled in the Cork, Limerick area, when she pulled off her last runner, Ive still got things belonged to her lots of photos, have lots an lots lots of stories, know all about the man she “married” up north in the time I knew her she was pregnant at least four times and tried to break up two marraiges, she has ripped off clothes shop, furniture stores you name it she has done it, OMG lucky escape if you really are Paul her son, the stories I have about you, before she did her last runner you had just buried Clyde after her commiting suicide, with your two stepsisters and Children and you had your wife going to a hospital mental issues appar and going for sole custody of the kids. I even got a bunch of flowers and a present from you for taking such good care of your “mum”. got the whole NZ story thing.

  83. BFTP from what I have gathered from this blog you have not been directly affected by this woman? You know her from the past and have been following her criminal progress over the years? Am I correct? Well if that is the case, this to you is at best a weird sort of hobby?! Some of the people here (most I’m guessing) have lost money, reputation, businesses and family over this woman and her actions, so yes people are angry. Your may think your random statements are clever and funny but this blog is some peoples only access to information/shared stories. If it is your intention to attempt to wind her up by all means continue I doubt she is reading this and is probably off sunning herself with her ill gotten gains, but leave the rest of us victims to try and piece together at least some information. Finally someone being angry is no indication that it’s her in fact it’s your weird comments that look much more suspicious. This is a strange hobby BFTP I’m more inclined to believe you are a past victim just like the rest of us if not then maybe you are her who knows I care even less. To all genuine victims let’s hope we here some news soon

  84. BLAST FROM THE PAST September 14, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Dear Julia

    Calm yourself down. Sit back and relax, take a deep breath. I really do think you should take a course in anger management. There is no need for such negativity and foul language.

    They’re coming to get you. There is nothing you can do now. So just relax and stay put.

    BTW Celia I was talking to an old friend of yours yesterday and this person knows more about you than even I do. If they decide to post a few stories here, you’ll need more than a course of anger management to stop you from swearing !

    Bye for now

  85. BLAST FROM THE PAST September 2, 2011 at 10:45 am

    I was just thinking last night to myself that although you call yourself another victim i don’t think you are all what you say.

    Infact i believe that you are Julia or Celia, Jules, Dr. JJ Watson, Dr J Hunter.

    Julia stop playing games. Come out, come out where ever you are

  86. Blast from the past I have stated how I know this woman I can not give details as it as part of an ongoing police investigation. As of yet you have never stated how you know her or any other details, just random comments/statements which as you say bring “very little to the table”. Many others also have seen this as I noticed reading down through the comments your statements have attracted similar comments from lucky escape and others. As I have stated before I understand people’s embarrassment about this whole situation but surely a straightforward and clear dialogue is necessary, as let’s face it the revelant authorities seem to be at a dead end, really what else can be done, bar setting up a facebook page, which I’m told I can not do for legal reasons?!! , So blast from the past you have no business telling anybody what apparently they no nothing about.

  87. BLAST FROM THE PAST August 29, 2011 at 1:29 pm


    I sincerely hope that you are not insinuating i an accompliance of the so called glamourous granny. Futher more i would appreciate you desist commenting on a subject that you no little about. As for me leaving ‘titbits’ at least i’m bringing something noteworthy to the table. Why don’t you tell us anything ? Who was the investigator ? Sounds awfully like the kettle calling the pot black to me.

    Lastly. Julia, Celia, Dr. Watson, Dr. Holmes or what ever you are calling yourself now. If you are reading this message, which i am sure you are, pay close atterntion to this blog because there is plenty more yet to come.

  88. I have been following this blog for sometime now and like many others I had a family memeber who was taken in by this woman. Lucky escape I really feel for you and unfortunately due to the nature of this womans actions and the shame suffered by the victims, and I don’t feel you will get much info here. However I did read as I am sure you did as well, there is a gentleman from the US who put a private investigator on her, I would say he would be your best bet. Blast from the past, I have no idea what your game is, but why hand out tit bits of information, but never give any straight answers yourself? Lucky escape I would avoid this person as they are behaving very strangely, and one thing the police did say to our family was that she probably had an accompliance, good luck to all who are looking for this woman.

  89. BLAST FROM THE PAST August 27, 2011 at 9:38 am

    Im assuming that the last message came from Paul. If I want to contact you, I know where to get hold of you.

    Any one remember when Julia Celia Jules or what ever she calls herself lived next door to the Strand town police station ? I think the land lady is still looking for her.
    Once she took up residence in Craigavon with a paramilitary sympathiser who she met when living in Armagh.
    Paul is your father still practicing ? or has he retired out of the medical profession ?
    I wonder where she is now. Surely if someone actually put their mind to it she would be caught…..she can’t be that far away

    Still waiting, still listening, still hoping for her to resurface soon and most likely in the hands of a law man.

  90. Come on blast from the past who are you and why are you so reluctant to contact me privately? You claim to know so much and offer to tell anyone who wants to know all of the info you claim to have except me? Is there a reason why you avoid me? Is it all a bit to close for comfort? Come on, surely you can do better than recalling some random event whilst walking down a street?

  91. blast from the past May 23, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    she has not been seen or i have not heard anything in the papers or news suprise suprise?

    julia, Celia, Jules, Watson, McKitterick, Holmes or ever your latest name is ……its been too long, too quiet. Whats happening ??? anyone know ?
    Is she spinning a web around her latest victim ? just like a black widdow. Is she getting ready to pounce on some poor victim, and i don’t mean poor in money terms. However, the poor person will be considerably poorer by the time she has finished with them. Does any one know where the black widdow’s web is ?
    For the unsuspecting male who has been trapped by the black widdow, when ever the black widdow has finished with the victim she casts aside his carcass and and move on to shadows and wait for her next prey to come by.

    Why did you not keep your last appointment in Downpatrick ? the reason you didn’t turn up was because you were too busy with your fangs in another poor soul.

    People you have been warned.

  94. blast from the past, oo myyy,in some respects u are probably right, but this woman is nothng more than a tart,she steals money from people she gets involved with, wthout their knowledge, she steals from business,maybe the victims are to trusting, but that is their only crime, she on other hand plans everything, and should be jailed, with the keys thrown away,remember that from the moment she opens her mouth to u, its all lies, this person is nothing more than a lier and an oldddd tart.

  95. fortunately she’s never managed to cause me any financial loss, that I know of least! I have to live with the unfortunate fact that she’s the mother who walked out 39 years ago, stole from my grandmother who raised me and deceived everyone around her! shame enough and reason enough to want to see the theiving deceitful b—- locked up! But hey, maybe I should just put it all down to experience blast from the past?

  96. exactly as i was thinking lucky escape at the start u qouted blast from the past “I hope no matter how embarrasing your circumstances are, you have had the strength to go to the relevant autorities. Because this time when, and i mean when she is caught she will be going down for a minimum sentence of five years” so wat exactly has changed your opinion all of a sudden?? if these men had her “on her back” just shows she really has no dignity and are u implying that these men are not victims because theyve had a sexual incounter with her??? im intregged by your onlook of this mess. and frankly that last comment would upset alot of the people following this.these guys didnt intend on paying for her they were simply coned like us all!!!!

  97. Blast from the past, You seem to have changed your tune? What you have said completely contradicts your previous postings! anyone who claims to know her so well would surely appreciate the pain this woman has caused both on a personal and financial level. I for one find your comments deeply offensive.

  98. blast from the past.. i dont think u atually relise the hurt this women has caused ur therory of put it down to experiance seems abit far fetch to me.. this women has not only took peoples money but wreck lives used children as her gate way to peoples heart, spun some of the biggest bull**** i have ever heard some1 with the gut to make so many lies and live by them needs locked up and people like u telling people to just “forget” about it is the reason this bitch isnt rotten in jail now if every single person reported each case of her the police would relilse how mad this women is and they could keep a closer eye on wer she is working.. there for EVERYONE should NOT forget it but report it regardless of how much or how little u have been been coned out of!!!!!!!!!!! not shy away and let this monster destroy more families and more dreams people work hard for there money, take years to build a business, sacrafice so much for sucess then sum1 like this bitch comes along and destroys it all with ease on her behalf… its disgusting shes not takin a feww ££ of ppl shes into millions of pounds so no dont put it down to experiance thats the dumest thing i have ever heard!!!!!!!!!!

  99. blast from the past February 9, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    To all you moaners out there. (most of whom appear to be men)

    She led you right up the garden path

    There is no such thing as a free dinner

    and now you are complaining because she took you on and you have been caught out

    I’m by no means defending the glam gran but i bet you weren’t complaining when she was on her back.

    Looks like a severe case of bollocks over brains lads.

    Bite the bullet, Get over it and move on !
    Just put it down to experience

  100. Here Here!!! The D day will come and we will all be in court to see her be taken down! She is a nobody! She has no life! Deserves everything and more!!! She is scum!!!!!!!!!

  101. can anyone help me with more of the stories that this woman has spun about me? Son in New Zealand etc.? Really concerned that she’s used my name to achieve her ill gotten gains! She also claimed to have pictures of my daughters and I? would anyone have kept copies of these or e-mail content supposedly from me that you could forward? Myself and my family would really appreciate it! So looking forward to seeing you again mother, IN COURT!!!!!

  102. contact the papers the more info they get the more interested they become

  103. I haven’t heard a thing on the news are in the papers since the 21/01/2011 obviously she hasnitbeen caught yet has anybody else heard anything the police have no clue

  104. i have a photo i can send you , julias fraud goes back as far as 1972 google (bogus investment scheme texan jailed belfast telegraph)

  105. I understand a photo of of her was in the Mirror on 1-21-2011. Can anyone send me a photo? I have a list of victims and a genuine intrest in seeing her stopped…I guess I’m not alone. To my knowlege her exploits in Phoenix AZ were unknown at the time of her trial, sentence and deportaion. After She and her Husband swindled me, I enlisted the help of a Private Investigator. I learned she had been an active con artist for many years. That was in 1987. I will watch this blog with interest and try to keep the pressure on. She has brought pain to the lives of too many.

  106. this woman rushes to get.the post first..she shops nails. beauty a most…hair dye. but denies this…her comfort zone…..a man older …children older.. not with him…
    looking for love …as in……ths is my last go at it…..
    we must look for this woman… she has no friends ,only the people u introduce
    her to..she probably a brunette…cant go blonde..too dark…unless needs a hairdresser!!!!she probably got next victim…. before she left last one….
    police are lazyyyyyyy…we need help from good people of n.ireland…this …”person” needs locked away…she WILL ..con again.

  107. i doubt she has a bank A/C of her own she uses the A/Cs of the poor men that she bleeds dry filling them full of lies shes a doctor shes pregnant she has money coming from america she needs put behind bars and yes the police dont seem to b able to catch her some1 must know where the fu**er is and if not then why do more people not be told about her, her face should be on the front of the belfast telegraph.is there nothing that can be done to catch her

  108. I can not believe this woman is still roaming around. I knew a victim of this woman and I heard her last appearance was Newtownards. She told us her son was in New Zealand amongst other lies of step-daughters/grandchildren/wealth from America etc. Who knows the really story? Anyway she must have someone helping her hide and supporting her? Is there no way for the police to track her bank account usage/benefit collection etc? Surely she is living by some means? the police seem pretty useless and this woman seriously needs put away for a very long time!

  109. To all interested parties,
    Be under no illusions about the capabilities of this woman. I say this as a word to the wise, dont believe a word that leaves this woman’s lips! I give this advice because there seems to be a few amongst you that holds a certain degree of sympathy for her, although i like others believe that those people are one and the same ie. JULIA!
    So MOTHER(CELIA,YOUR REAL NAME AS YOU WELL KNOW), and yes this is your son who you abandoned and left with a black eye when I was six months old.
    I along with the rest of the family you deceived, swindled and stole from have followed your career with great interest. This was particulary beneficial when i received a letter from the salvation army who you also conned, claiming that you had contacted them via solicitor, stating that you had returned to the province from the States as a successful businesswoman wanting to re-establish links with your long lost son. What horse s—, we all know you were in Hydebank and needed a bail address after your latest escapade. A bit of advice, if you ever try to interfere in my life or the lives of my family, i will hunt you down and hand you over to the relevant authorities. To be perfectly clear NEVER TRY TO CONTACT ME AGAIN. YOU ARE A COMPLETE WASTE OF SPACE AND A DECEITFUL B—- WHO PUTS THE DEVIL TO SHAME!
    Anyone who can forward a recent picture of this trash, so that myself and my family can be on the lookout would be greatly appreciated!

  110. There really should be ! i thiught there might be more follow up done in the papers after the first article was put in!!

    I was very lucky as ihad no money for her to take but things could have been very different!!

    Km if you want a photo email me!

  111. there needs to be more publicity about her the papers radio anything she nedds caught

  112. Dr Juls/Celia Watson/Holmes/whatever was last seen in Ards after being caught out in carryduff and doing a runner! Yet more victims personal and buinesses! she really is a piece of work!!

  113. just like to comment on that headcase DR Julia or whoever she may be today, I know she swindled a lot of money out of people in the carrickfergus/newtownabbey/Larne area, while trying to befriend shopowners with her tails of woe ie: her poor dog that was on a life support machine in the states, her scan picture of her fake pregnancy printed of the internet, along with many other far fetched stories. i hope she gets caught soon planning on taking a few weeks of for the trial should make a good entertainment lets hope its soon b4 she gets her wicked claws into more people. THE BITCH

  114. Another person conned out of money been reading up about her for the last two days how has she got away with it for so long! when she was sentence in 2008 for the 1m salon fraud charge relating to a salon in sion mills and defrauding businesses out if money how long did she get obviously not long enough when she moves to another town and does it again.
    does anybody know were she is now are where she was last seen .
    unbelieveable i hope she is caught soon

    i cant find the article or picture in the daily mirror so if somebody has a link to it please send me it thanks

  115. Sorry to hear that! How did she do u??? Check out Daily Mirror page 15 from last Friday 21/1. BIG photo!

  116. any1 any photos of julz? as i think i know of her and im another victim

  117. So nice to hear of you again Julia. We last connected over 20 years ago… You remember Phoenix? When we last spoke, I told you I wouldn’t forget. Your take from me was not significant but we dug up many other folks you conned out of a great deal of cash. Then of course, you bolted. Imagine my surprise (many years later) to find your name in the newspaper’s local events calendar in my new community… Small world! I did a little digging, then simply watched and waited. In time, I learned more. I made sure the good Doctor in Athens TX heard a story he had no trouble understanding or believing. At that time he was already suspicious but in denial. The tale of your exploits in Phoenix convinced him his concerns were well founded. I would like to know more because it’s obvious from this blog you aren’t through… Neither am I. You’ve been deported from the U.S. and now it sounds like your running out of options. I’m sure that in time you’ll be back in prison on the taxpayers dollar…Anyone who can shed light on your dark past and current antics would be doing a service for all.

  118. Blast from the past…. that is soooo funny!! Excellent!!!! Theyre coming to get you glamorous GRANNY!!! lol

    Daily MIRROR MIRROR on the wall. Who is the most WANTED of them all ?

  121. I searched through my collection of smileys but could not find any with saggy boobs. Will this do ((,)(,)).

    She sounds strangly luring, like a cold war spy (but obviously older and as we have accertained with somewhat lacking lustre breasts). That said, I could be bond to her Pussy Galore.

    At the very least she could blag me a bogus mortgage. It could’nt be any worse than the Northern Banks offerings. Probably less dodgy.

  122. She shounds like a real catch. Where can i find her? Any names/numbers I can use?

I hope you are not in too much debt altho she has prob told u about her so called fortune from american….download the plea agreement!! however u do need to go to the authorites.. she gets away with it for ppl dont report it!!!!! She has more faces than the albert clock and bigger balls of steel than anything!! Blast from the past you must have some good & interesting stories to tell!! This conversation could go on n on… so much to hear and tell!! The D DAY is COMING!!!!!!

  126. I think we are all watching with interest!! Where is this Julia person living now???? I hope you are not in too much debt unless she has told u about her fortune from american…. so laughable!!!!! She has more faces than the albert clock and bigger balls of steel than anything!! This conversation could go on n on… so much to hear and tell!!

    Latest Victim

    I hope no matter how embarrasing your circumstances are, you have had the strength to go to the relevant autorities. Because this time when, and i mean when she is caught she will be going down for a minimum sentence of five years.

    Well Mary. I know you said you weren’t going to post again on this site. However, i’m sure you’re watching with great interest as is Julia. The net is closing in and Julia’s time is virtually up ! and Mary like others you will be very very pleased

  128. Hi Blast from the past, I am the latest victim of this saggy faced lady of leisure. I was hoping if you could tell me abit more about Jules, Julia, Celia as she has just conned me and left me in debt.

  129. blast from the past December 31, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    People people people.
    I really feel sorry for everyone who have been taken on by this lady of leisure.
    Did you not read the comments that i left above regarding julia.


    There’s only one person out there who has managed to see through this wicked lady.
    To all you other future victims WAKE AND SMELL THE COFFEE

  130. Still at ur work Jules!!! Just hope that last comment isnt made by the latest victim… too nice a man to have that blow dealt to but then u dont care whose life u bust up! We are all sitting waiting with a big smile on r faces waiting on the D day!!

  131. i agree with the person with all those delightfull names that jule or jules uses, i can say a few,they are common like her, saggey boobs, needs a face lift, thinksssssssss she good at, what they they call it when a sow does it???everything issss false about …whats her, name????? watch ur back.
    they coming for uuuu And i sitting here with a big smile on my face……sooo jules. julie, see u around till we meet again.

  132. Julia as you know its me “Mary” the latest victim of your ploys. After reading the comments below from somebody who obviously knows the true you I feel it is only right that I make a comment. The mistake I made was trusting you and giving you a home and my bed for 4 months which was against my family’s wishes, but I thought everybody deserves a second chance. All you have done is taken advantage of me and all of my family including my parents. We were never short of money until you came into our home and spun all the stories that you did and used my children in the process (how low can you go). How you can live with your own conscious is beyond me, but then I actually think you believe your own lies! The truth will come out Julia and I’m only too pleased to see that one of your many skeletons from your past has come out from the cupboard. Now please leave me and my family alone. You have done nothing but cause sorrow and grief since you came to Saintfield, you are even well known in Saintfield for your antics in the short period of time that you were there. Yes I did make a mistake in the past but the biggest and second mistake I have ever made in my life was letting you into my home and my family’s life. I wish I had listened to them in the first place. I only wish that more of your skeletons would appear and then people would know what you’re truly like. Somebody recently told me that you were good at what you do but Julia you are really good at what you do, you missed your calling as an actress! I hope and pray dearly that I never hear your name(s) again in my life. My children have been through enough pain and despair in their wee short lives without you adding to it! If you have a conscious at all you will do what is right for them! I shall not be responding to any other comments relating to me on this page as it is actually all about you.

  133. blast from the past November 17, 2010 at 12:45 pm


    Hello again

    I found your comments disappointing. The Julia that I know would have something better to say than that.
    You were somewhat dismissive in everything that i had previously written.
    Perhaps you may be aware by now that im not going to give up on you. Like a bad penny i will keep turning up.
    Mary is not the issue. YOU ARE.
    Julia you moved from Carrick,Cork, Strabane, Sion Mills, not forgetting H.M.P, Saintfield and then Ballynahinch….you’ve had more addresses than the post office of late. Now since you’re near the big 60,
    don’t you think its about time you settled down ?
    Even if you’re not Julia i know she will be reading this.
    Julia one last thing don’t leave it so long to reply this time.
    Ok thats me for now. places to go things to do and people to see you know how it is.

    p.s you spelt ‘said’ wrong

  134. I read with interest your comments and have nothing against someone i do not even know. You are right there have been a lot of mistakes in julias past but i think if you could hear what i have heard via recordings of what mary has siad and her family you would not say she has only made one mistake. I have known julia since school and her daddys funeral was poorly attended with good reason. We will agree to differ and I hope you find something good to say about everyone. good luck

  135. blast from the past November 9, 2010 at 11:53 am


    I just want to tell you that I am in no way connected with Mary Martin.

    Do the names Crothers from Douglas Street, the Thompsons from the Albert Bridge Road, the Holmes from Malcolm Lane or the McKittricks mean any thing to you ??

    You claim you knew Julia’s father, however, I don’t remember meeting you at his funeral all those years ago.

    How long have you known Julia for ?
    Before she stayed in Armagh for a while ??

    As you claim to know so well find out where she got her Phd from. Was it in the roundabout ??

    Finally Martine. related only has one ‘a’ in it and its display not ‘dispaly’ as you typed.

    Hopefully this should draw some closure on the matter of who knows Julia and who the REAL Julia is. Or must I continue ?

    As for Mary she only made one mistake. As for you. Sorry I meant to say Julia, she has made a life time of them.

  136. You are so wrong but then you are relaated to mary and she has always had money problems I met mary and know what she is like as for Julias dad I knew him to. So you could not be more wrong about that situation. Still Mary did make several mistakes and the latest one was trying to involve julia in what she was doing her dirty laundry is fixinf to come out anyway so no need ofr me to dispaly it.

  137. blast from the past November 2, 2010 at 4:37 pm


    Mary may have made a mistake once, however, Julia has been conning people for ALMOST 40 YEARS. Julia started off by conning her father and progressed over the years to conn everyone she meets especially people who befriend her.

    There are a lot of people who have been conned by her with out knowing – and still don’t know to this day

  138. I read the message left about ballynahinch and when I looked at who left those two messages it is MAry Martin if you care to look her up you will find the info on how she and her husband conned her mother in law out of her home. I have known julia a long time and know what this woman has done to her. So if you want to believe her lies then look up mary martin belfast telegraph or the spotlight program then decide if you would believe anything she said. I know Julia tried to be a friend to her and got stabbed in the back

  139. Another Victim July 22, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    This woman as I know her is Julia Watson is running about Carryduff now. Watch out all you suspecting men!

  140. Julia Parrish or Julia Holmes or Dr J J Watson as she calls herself now is living in Ballynahinch and still trying to swindle people.

  141. you may or may not be interested to know, that julia parrish has just currently left carrickfergus, co.antrim, n.ireland. fbi and psni are still looking for her. she has just committed bigamy with a male friend of mine and pretended she was pregnant and still frauding male partners of their money.
