It is many years since Morning Mary was in Ballina and even longer since she was in Ardnaree but this sight, apart from the people, is very familiar. On the “wrong” side of the river from the bulk of the town, it was the site of a famous boxing club, but close to many of the attractions of Ballina of that time!
I wonder what we can find out about it today?
