Description

With their Belfast city centre shop being caught up in the bombing of the early Troubles, Paddy and Margaret Brand escape at the weekends to find fun and leisure in the lakelands of Fermanagh. The footage includes scenes of them waterskiing and enjoying outdoor parties by the waterside as an antidote to the stressful times back in Belfast. This clip appeared in Series 1, Programme 1 of Super 8 Stories.
