Moment in Time: A visit to Paddock NS back in 2001

Look at these little faces from 18 years ago!

There’s just something nostalgic about looking at images from the past.

They allow you to remember that particular time in life and ponder how things have changed in the years since.

So with that in mind, this week’s ‘Moment in Time’ images are from February 2001.

Photographer Alf Harvey visited Paddock NS and these snaps will definitely have some people rolling back the years.

Paddock NS is situated at the foothills of the Slieve Bloom mountains.

It has been educating the children of the area since 1887 and continues to grow today.

You can’t beat old photos.
