Liam Logan takes a run down the Ards to Portavogie, to have a yarn with Carole Gilmore, who started working in the village post office in 1963. Carole has some lively memories of a lifetime spent behind the counter, and out and about forby, delivering and collecting the letters, in the days when this was done by push-bike.
