Memories of Carrickfergus

Read and share your memories of Carrickfergus itself or of a particular photo of Carrickfergus.

My Mum, Anna Gregg, was evacuated here during the Second World War, a long way from her mother and family in Belfast. My sisters, my eldest daughter and eldest grand-daughter came here with my mum a few years ago. Mum could still remember all the shops and places she went to whilst she was evacuated here. Does anybody else have memories of being evacuated here or of my mum?

Ahh the memories. I was born at 22 Irish Quarter South,home of my Grandfather, Arthur Bamford, a house that stood at the top of the coal quay, pulled down in 1949, a garage stands there now. Caught many a mackeral off the end of the coal quay too. Haven`t been home since December 2000, maybe one day.
