Sweet Childhood Memories - a Memory of Portrush.

I was born in portrush in 1961 to a Mr &Mrs Billy Ganley I'm one of 5 children at the time and we lived in causeway street, my father had been living in Portrush for some years before he married my mum with the bundell family who worked Barrie's at that time.I remember as a child spending the long summer days having picnics on the beach and attending St Patricks which was just across the road from our house, and we went to Barrie's once a year a a special treat when cousins would join us from kilrea, and now as an adult I have returned with my husband and my children many times when they were young and as adults and it still fill me with a warmth that I can't explain.Now I return with my mum, may Ganley once a year in her young age of 80 as my father is no longer with us so that she can relive her sweetheart memories and she has so many stories to tell me along the way, we love Portrush dearly and my heart still remains true to Portrush and Nothern Ireland.
