Blackrock Co Louth - My Childhood Home
In Photo 2: just out of the picture here is where Rock Road goes up the hill, we lived in Hillcrest, and if I recall some of our neighbours were the Sharkeys, the Devenneys and the Stewarts.
In the village itself there was an indoor Roller Skating Rink, Malloca's Cafe where we used to get chips and play the jukebox, and later on when the Swimming Pool was built I used to spend most of my summer holidays biking in and out to Blackrock, after we moved to Dundalk.
