If I remember right, it was a school.  Can't remember the name.  I think that the statue on the left is the one that stood in the old Black and White Hall opposite the old ward 5 and 6 in the R.V.H.  I heard the statue called 'Viky the butt'  as it always had a butt in it's mouth..

Some nice old photos....liked the couple of dunville park in all its glory i just wonder (and hope) that when all the work is finished that the thugs will leave it alone, and let the people enjoy the beauty and the children enjoy the new play area.

Loved that Rathlin - we used to walk there every Sunday - mammy used to meet loadsa people on the road, most of them customers from her shop and we used to pull and tug at her dress to hurry her up as she'd stay talking for ages, she'd always tell us off afterwards for pulling at her clothes -  we always got a poke when we got there - those were the days, lovely memories :)    Then we went to the cemetery, regular  Sunday outing, on the way home we'd visit my mum's sister who lived opposite St James Park - she had multiple sclerosis and always made us some bread and jam and she was the cheeriest person I ever visited in my life even though she spent most of her marriage in a wheelchair looking after her 4 children.    I also remember going in the "Cooler" ??? sometimes which might've been in the back of the park ???

Happy smiling faces of workers in Greeve's Mill Conway Street 1937.  Little did they know of the horrors that were not too far off.
