  1. I am not greatly into sports, but I do enjoy a day at the races. The £1 bet really adds extra interest to a race. I remember a memorable October day at Downpatrick Races. I was entertaining Elly’s French Mother and her friend who were on holiday with me at the time.

    Elly came home from Scotland for the week and the four of us headed off somewhere different each day. For my sins I taught Elly how to place a bet at Downpatrick that day, and she did all the business for us before each race. Between us we had a winner on every race. The craic was mighty and they did their best with a spot of match-making for me! 😀

    We journeyed home via Strangford and the Ferry to Portaferry for a hot toddy, and they sang all the way up the Ards peninsula and onward to Co Antrim. One word – Downpatrick – brings back that happy day!
