I'm half an hour away. Always head over (pre-covid) for a visit a couple of times a year. Lovely spot and with Ashford Castle beside it as well.

Angels with Dirty faces 

The Wizard of Oz

 

I also remember a movie from this era where a teacher gives a kid loads of lashes and the kid goes home and tells his dad/uncle who then twats the teacher. Can't for the life of me find what it was called. Its black and white.
