Panton Street
« on: March 21, 2009, 12:35:33 AM »
My great aunt (Rose Monaghan) lived in Panton Street in a house that ajoined a school.Was wondering if anyone had any photos.Remember her baby-sitting me and my sister,we would never venture to the third floor as she told us it was haunted.Maybe she just didn't want us kids going up there :-\

The school you speak of was St Peter's Primary School.  There are no photographs surviving of the school that I know of but there is a painting of the school.  I will see if I can dig it out for you.   In 1918, in the school, some child switched on the gas and an explosion occurred and two children died.  I lived in nearby Conway Street.  The haunted story probably came from this incident.

Sadly people rearly talked about death and I only heard of the distaster a few years ago.  Very sad times indeed.

I lived next door to the girls school in 38 Panton Street and your Aunt Rose was a wonderful lady. Rose worked in the Royal Ave Hotel and would bring me home signed autograghs from anyone famous staying at the Hotel. Great woman just wish I still had the autos
