One comment on “Ballakermeen High School – Better Known As “Balla”

  1. When I lived in St Catherine’s Drive as a young boy the land to the west of the school was open fields all the way down to Peel Road. If you draw a line between the southern gate of the school to Pulrose Road there existed a hedge with trees and a dry stone wall, about half wat down one tree had grown around a large slab of stone an a piece of the iron railing (I’m guessing ti was the old outer perimeter wall of Belmont House).
    Anyway we called it the Witches Seat and I wonder if you know of it and whether it still exists?
    I’m afraid I haven’t been back to the island since I got married in Castletown in 1988.
