I think there was a snooker hall at the top of Panton St, left hand side going up .
If you don't do it you won't get caught.

I think it was right hand side going up from the school.  New people lived in that St  called Kerr and oh I have forgotten the other name.

There was one going up Panton Street towards the Falls Road on the right side.  Simey Clark was the owner.  The pellers were frequent visitors to it as it was a gambling den also.

Youse are right Clark Bro's did rent the shots from granny Garland from Alma St. Nee Susanne Sheilds. After the shots it became The Cullingtree Upholstery owned by Vinty Hamilton from Albert St. Sadly a pipe bomb was planted there and killed Vinty. Patsy and Joe McDonnell both served there apprenticeshops there.

My mom is Maureen Monaghan from 40 Panton St.  My Uncle Paul and mom came to US in 1955.  Marie Mateer and my mom are still close.  My mom remembers the O'Hara's well also.  KDoc we met at my granddads house in Sea Cliff many years ago.

The ghost story about the Panton Street school has been told for years but a different version to the gas explosion.
 
the story i was told was that there was a party in the school and something made the kids run to the stairs. they all panicked and there was a crush after they fell down the stairs.
 
The story has it that you can still hear those poor little souls crying ata certain time.

Kevin,
All is well here.  We are all excited my mom is going back to Belfast to spend time with your mom and her cousins/friends.  It is something that is long over due.  I believe she will be staying with your mom most of the trip.  I would love to be a fly on the wall when they get started telling stories from when they were young.  They are always funny.  I love the stories of the nuns at the school!!!
