In this oral history recording, Reverend Godfrey Brown shares his memories, thoughts and reminiscences from his time as a Presbyterian Minister serving Ballycastle and the surrounding area from 1964. The Reverend is interviewed by historian Danny McGill.
This recording references local characters like Harry Diamond, Jack Coyles and others, and helps to paint a vivid picture of life in the town and the Presbyterian Church through the years.
Additional topics explored include Clare Park and White Hall, Boys Brigade, Poor Row, socialising and recreation back in the day, how Ballycastle has changed through the years.
