Instonians on both sides: the Academy boy fights back!


The achievement of arms of my old school, Ballymena Academy.

Today has been an uplifting day. I ended up over in the Lisburn Road area of the city of Belfast which is not somewhere I have been for quite some time. I can’t remember when I was last over there. But I was over there, spending time with Andrew and one of his contemporaries from Royal Belfast Academical Institution. First time that I have knowingly spent time with two Instonians! The Ballymena Academy boy in me wanted to excel in what we were doing. I think I got some way to managing that.

It is amazing how one day can change your outlook. I know that I have been getting down about life recently, but today has helped to turn it around. So a great big thanks to Barry!

I wonder who from my Academy days reads this blog, and even from the days beyond those at Cambridge House and even from Carniny! If you are reading, do say hello.
