Description

Dr. Frank McDowell takes us on a diverse trip from school rugby matches to Strangford lough by way of the Mourne mountains and the moon, making time for some competitive mirror dinghy racing, the children’s first flight from Ards airport and a spectacular trip up Slieve Donard. A tiny snippet from television shows the Apollo 16 moon landings in April 1972. Meanwhile, back down to earth, there are new pups to be admired.
