Q Tell us about your childhood

A My childhood was before the Troubles, so it was all very idyllic and normal and there was great freedom back then.

It doesn't seem as if children today have the same freedom as I had when I was a kid. During the school holidays me and my friend would have had our breakfast and gone off somewhere and our parents wouldn't have had a clue where we were - up the glen or up the hills somewhere - and then we came back for lunch and off out again.
