  • The search for Moira International balloon festival continues.

    Used to fish here when I was a kid. Did they ever get the ferry working again?

  • socaire

    No ferry, no boat only a footbridge. Seemingly the RUC opposed a road bridge because it would help terrorism in Oirthear Thír Eoghain.

    They were probably right, Socaire. After the Great Segregation and ethnic cleansing of north Portadown in the early ’70’s, I was unable to go there any more. Used to go on my bike, but it became much too dangerous for a ‘wee Prod’ like me going through Ballyoran and Garvaghy! Haven’t been back in nearly 40 years.

  • Where exactly is that river in East Belfast. I don’t remember it 😉

  • socaire

    Keep taking the tablets, Joe. Go any time, pauluk. Sure we’re all friends now.BTW I wouldn’t ride a bike there either.

    I`ll maybe take a race out sometime, socaire! In my car, that is.
