Ballycastle - Brief Encounter

Jane, Nevin, Siobhan and Eithne

These three lovely ladies are old friends who now live in different parts of the world. I met them as teenagers - back in the day - when members of the Junior Council of Social Service in Coleraine arranged informal concerts at the Corrymeela Centre near Ballycastle. Although those were sad times, they were also the best of times. The late Ray Davey, one of Corrymeela's founders, was my role model, my source of inspiration:

"We hope that Corrymeela will come to be known as ‘the Open Village’, open to all people of good will who are willing to meet each other, to learn from each other and work together for the good of all." .. Ray

Blue MGB I drove back then!
