Slieve Gullion

Recommended Posts

Evening everyone,

I'm new here so have only posted once but I was wondering if anyone had any photos of Slieve Gullion on the tour to Carrickfergus for the castle's 900th anniversary in 1980.

I did take some photos but I think they may have been lost in the intervening 40odd years.

I bought the tickets from Mullan's bookshop (which I believe has now gone) in Donegal Place.

yes, Mullan’s is long gone. Quality shop. It was the 800th anniversary in 1980, and I remember it well. I was 9 and my dad was at that point both RPSI treasurer and treasurer for the church in Carrick which was also 800 that year; I was almost certainly on that train! I certainly recall the 800 anniversary keyrings and mugs I was tasked with flogging.
