Anyone remember the anti-aircraft guns that were installed at Ballysillen Road and Joanmount Gardens? I remember playing on them as a boy.
Today was tomorrow just yesterday

Hi Donovan

I would love to hear more about your story of visiting the crashed B-17 bomber on Cavehill, my friend Alfie and I have been researching this story for many years. We have recently published a book about the crew and the crash, but we are still on the search for as many accounts as possible to add to the records about the crash. Your input would be much appreciated. Did you access the site from the golf course at the top or the field at the top of Ben madigan Park?. Look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks

Will
