Rob McKeown mentioned the cafe balcony. In the '50s, this played a crucial part in the inititation of "newts". First formers were often suspended over the balcony and dropped. Crying, complaining to teachers etc would have resulted in humiliation and a blight on your school career.
No the cafe isnt there anymore, it's been gone for a good few years now and all that go there are scallies! sorry to shatter your memories...
I recall playing around the islands, it was like a jungle before it was covered and filled 64' 65' is the cafe with a balcony still there...
