The Roses were in bloom as the holiday makers
arrived at the
St John of God Centre Ballyvaloo

Madeleine Minogue rscj arrived on holidays with Rita Kinch rscj


People quickly got  settled in and
soon were exploring the place,
or visiting old haunts along the beach.










The weather was kind to the holiday makers,
so the beach offered possibilities for
refreshing walks and
paddles in the sea
