This is the fifth part of our Port st Mary road trip! The text roughly translates as follows:
This is the promenade which was built between 1962 and 1965. People call it the Catwalk now but it was called the Karran-Quirk after the Clerk of Purt st Mary Commissioners, Harold Karran, and the Mason Hary Quirk who managed the project.
I am on the shore near to the Catwlak now and here there is a cave or hole; and there is a story or two about this place. The first that there was a Tarroo-Ushtey living here years ago and there were many people who believed that the Tarroo-ushtey did live here, and the other story was that a cat went into the cave and that it came out on the beach in Port Erin. Well, I’m not certain if that story is true or not but that’s the story anyway.
