Port Soderick paddling pool being brought back to life

Recommended Posts

Well done the folk who did this over the weekend.

There's a bit on Facebook Nostalgia page and probably elsewhere about it.

Here's a Google Earth for comparison and how it has been for? 25 years or more?

Great! Hope those KIds don't get in the way of my 20cc. Cigar Boat model!

Pesky Kids, haven't they got smart phones to play with?

I thought you’d have had enough interaction with the Coastguard this weekend?

It's a veterans charity thing. They're also doing up the arcade as the new HQ. Kayaks and fishing.

Wait for the bloody big gates to be erected near the car park (check the planning application...), and then there's the restricted access.  Will be just like Buchenwald!

Did you just compare Port Soderick to a concentration camp you demented fuckwit.

Wait and see, Neil - you will see exactly what I am referring to in time (even if you don't like the reference I have made).

In a visible sense, that is exactly what it will appear like unfortunately.  Lots of metal, and 'directed' foot traffic with zero movement outside of what is permitted/barricaded.

If you are offended by the wording used, then I will apologise for this, but I will say that there is no other visible comparison that I can come up with - if you can find me something that paints a similar visual representation, by all means make a suggestion and I will happily edit the above.

If you had any sort of education, you could have come up with any number of options other than a Nazi concentration camp.

The gates to purgatory, or is that underplaying it?

Fair enough, Neil - i'm not going to get drawn in to an argument with you.

I have made my apologies for the reference used.
