Anyone remember the "hogies" (maybe spelt wrong) down by Marian row and Bridgets Crescent.

Probably Castlebar's only home grown and unique sport.
You start off on the hogies and then graduate to jumping the river.

If anyone has really good memory they might rember what doing a "skin" was?

I think you have to be of a generation that was no older than 45, none of this stuff was possible before the stream was walled in.
