Carol. thank you for doing this........Blackrock does indeed have a history of entertaining coach parties on a Sunday/ I remember back in 1968/9 the place being full of Ulsterbus buses and coaches with day trippers from the North, where of course you couldn't get alcohol on a Sunday!
As a final note, I want to publicly thank you for all your help and support and entertainment during your time at NLI and I am sure every flickrite will want to wish you the very best for the future.....you will be sorely missed! Good luck !!!!!!!
