Antrim has enjoyed peaks and troughs on the sporting field over the years,
but they have consistently punched above their weight on the hockey field.There
have been many great exponents of the game who have pulled on local colours,
such as the late Alvin Carson, but others have made their own indelible niche
too. Few would deny former mayor Paddy Marks a place on that list, and to
the left of this picture - taken in 1958 - you can see the sort of passion
that made him a local legend!

This view taken in 1924 from the back wall of the castle and in the background
is the Deerpark bridge. The steps to the right lead up to the castle - Sadly
the steps have another story to tell and that is that one of the 'Lordies'
fell down these steps and broke his neck. Local man Rodney McCullough
remembers there being a tunnel next to the steps, it is still there and it
leads to the pump house. The cannon has been found and will be back sometime
in the future but sadly not in the Castle grounds due to vandalism. It
now stands on the Castle wall in Market Square.
