    Take a trip back to 1995 with Ray D'Arcy :p



    There's been some amazing developments around the area in a mere 15 years! Nothing at all to the west of the college, its quite unbelieveable

    Ha ha best line is "There's lot's to do in Athlone" followed by a snap shot of munches :D:D

    Although to Rays credit he does know how to pronounce Athlone, a task that many of the residents have yet to master. It generally goes something like AAHHloneeeaa

    I remember eating in it when it first opened, it seemed cool at the time as it was the nearest thing to Supermacs and McDonalds before they both opened in Athlone. Then it was closed down for health and safety reasons.
