although not of the catholic faith, I was sent there to recuperate from asthma , and spent some time there, 1956- 58. I remember happy times as well as sad and lonely times, especially being far from home, and often having the feelings of not totally understanding why I was actually there, but on the whole I thing I must have enjoyed it , lots of time on the beach, as we were only a few hundred yards or so from it,that is where I aquired my first fishing rod, 7/6d as I recall, I can still picture many of the faces of my fellow inmates, John O'brien alias " Prof " and Nick Hornby, a couple of names that now and then pop up as memories, also a couple of the of the nuns, Sister Mary Eugene, and Sister Mary Valentine, by the way my name is : Kenneth Marchant,
and if anybody remembers me, please get in touch, I would love to hear from you...
