' AN ULSTER CHILDHOOD ' by Lynn Doyle read by the author
Although Lynn Doyle now lives near Dublin, Ulster can claim him as one of her best-known authors and short-story writers, for he was born and bred not far from Downpatrick. He worked for a banking company, and when he retired a few years ago he had been, so he says, a bank manager for more years than he cares to count.
As a young man, he began writing short stories which appeared in the pages of The Strand Magazine, and which, indeed, have appeared in those pages regularly ever since. The creator of the famous Ballygullion, he has ably exploited the amusing foibles as well as the qualities of Ulster character, and his ' Ulster Childhood ', from which he reads tonight, is largely autobiography against a County Down setting.
