Re: A little History lesson
As a young child living in Quarry Road my best pal called Brian McDougall and myself would buy a fishing net from Bob Hudson and go fishing in the first Lake. In those days the Lake was full of of minows and sticklebacks. On Sundays a neighbour would take me and Brian to feed the swans as she walked her dog Rex. As for the quarry it was out of bounds. I do recall one young lad lost his life there when the ball went on today Cork and him thinking it was solid but we went straight under and I believe was never seen again.
