   High cannon thanks for that great i was awere of schools around the area but not that many so everton can read this for himself thanks again cannon                                regards colin                                                                                                                                                         
Hi Colin, some other catholic primary schools which were used by kids of the  Grosvenor Road area   St.Peter's Raglan St. (boys &girls),  St.Catherine's Cavendish St. (girls), St.Vincent's Dunlewey St.(girls), St.Finian's(boys) Falls Road and St.Pauls Cavendish Square(boys).
  I also remember another one on Getty St./Leeson St. corner.   I   think most of these were active until the 1980's,  when there was some restructuring.
                                                                              Cannon

tommybeef - I remember the playground on the roof very well. A very good idea because the school was well surrounded by the streets and there was very few play areas around for the chidren.
I was up at the RVH the other day and was walking down the Grosvenor after my appointment. The boys and girls from St Josephs were all out in the playground playing away together. I think I read somewhere that the Slate Street school had different floors for the boys and girls and I don't believe they played together in the playground on the roof.
Someone will probably inform us soon if that's correct.
