I went to St Matthews school and we used to go to Templemore Ave baths on a Monday night to learn to swim, but I can't remember the name of the club, or the people who taught us.

No REP, I think the Name was Mc Dermot, I went on thurs nites as well. He was a big man, his son could swim like a fish. If we have got his name wrong, someone on the forum will put us right.

Thanks very much Rep1 for putting that photo of Anderson Street on, you made one old lady very happy. She was visiting me and I was showing her all the posts from people at home and she wanted to have a go at asking something.
If I know her she will be wanting to post the next time she visits.  :smile: :smile: :smile:
