Bishop Lucey Park on the Grand Parade was a car park before. I have to admit I have no memory of this at all. Even though I always think of Bishop Lucey Park as “new” it was actually opened in 1985!

Pre Bishop Lucey Park. This was taken around the same time as Tony’s photo of the Grand Parade. We had a radio Station “Leeside” on the top floor of the Shamrock shop. There was a 12″ drop from one side of the room to the other, so rent was cheap.
