The Old Blue Ball on Bradfield Road in Hillsborough

This now gone pub on Hillsborough Corner used to be extremely popular before falling on hard times and then eventually closing down and is now totally demolished

I remember the pub had quite unique looking architecture and must have been very profitable as it was always rammed inside and out in the late 80s early 90s the landlord was called Trev but after he left it went down hill very fast.

When i was a young lad i was always told to stay away from this place especially on match days and would go into the Shakey just up the road instead. I think its rough reputation is what led to its decline and eventually being demolished.
