P. T. O'HARE
According to Thomas Hood ' Some minds improve by travel, others rather resemble copper wire or brass which gets the narrower by going farther '. And there is that old proverb : ' If an ass goes a-travelling he'll not come home a horse'. There is no denying the good sense of those two sayings but nevertheless the prospect of travel and a holiday away from home rarely fails in its appeal to the imagination. In this ' Cutting Loose' series various speakers will describe their views on the best way to spend leisure, be it a long summer holiday or a casual ' afternoon off' from work.
This evening P. T. O'Hare , who is
Agricultural Inspector at Ballymena, is going to talk about an adventure he had some years ago in Fermanagh with a companion of his. He has an interesting story. They were spending a holiday at Enniskillen, boating on Lough Erne. Getting stranded on one of the Islands they did not get away until very late at night. When they returned to the town their only reward was to be clapped into a police station, where they had to spend the night because of the curfew restrictions that were in fashion at the time in Enniskillen.
