I remember going to the open air pool. I think my brother swam in it but I wasn't allowed. I do know it was VERY cold, even in summer!

This is where my dad grew up and learned to swim - the pool was virtually right next door to the house where he was born and he spent many happy summers with his mates here.

When I was about 18months old my dad used to put me into an inner tube and let me float around in this pool. I could swim by the time I was 3. His name was Bernard Hennigan and he was a pool attendant and instructor.

Before the Aireville baths were built, this was IT. In the 40/50s they held swimming & diving competitions there. It was horrible and dirty-looking. I learned to swim in 1948 in the indoor pool next door; it was rather small too.
