Isabeal's

I was a member of the swimming fraternity in the 50's and Isabeal's was a regular hangout for many of my friends. I still vividly remember Matthew who was quite a vivid character.

Frankie's Memories

1960 was a great time for music. My memory of that year was the dance halls dotted around Belfast, the best being The Plaza in Chichester Street and many great buildings, sadly no longer with us.
