Alan, it's from the beach, by their boatclub, kind of obscure to find, as you leave the main road , the works entrance is on the right, but swing left, up the wee road between the trees, over the railway bridge, then the social club car park is in front of you, there's another wee road off to the right, down to the beach.

Regards Kenny.

Alan, I've no idea of what you're talking about, is she a boat?
I can't recall the Brown Mouse at all, any more info please.

regards Kenny.

Kenny, She was a well-known workboat at Belfast. See photo of tug Southampton which I have just posted - I think that's her in the foreground. Last I heard she was on the County Antrim Coast. Regards, Alan.

OK Alan,know now what you mean, one of the boatmens, but first thought she was somebody's pleasureboat.
Yes you remind me now, they were a brown colour at first then took on an orange colour, smilar to TTF's.

Would that be the Brown Mouse with the Ballyrory at the BQ? here ;
