About this memory

"My grandfather John Hay, with my mother Anne Maley, with my sister Elizabeth aged two and a half, and John Maley aged seven..

" grandfather's house was situated only ten feet from the seashore and when it was a rough sea with high winds, the sea water when it would come in with force and strike the small wall, sea water would strike the windows." - John Maley (2002)
