Childhood Memory Of Rasharkin. - a Memory of Rasharkin.

My grandparents, Patrick and Mary Lagan, lived in Sunnyside Drive, Rasharkin. I well remember a holiday there when I was 7yrs old (the last time I saw them). I was born in England, my mum having moved over in the forties. I remember playing with a family called Workman who also lived in Sunnyside. I went back 50 yrs later and the village shop was still there and much as I remembered it - I can still recall the smell of peat fires, and when I sometimes smell it I'm reminded of being there.
