I also remember the uc grounds on ormo road it was always cold we had Stephen Feeney in our class and he was good at football I hated school bit now regret it my fault not the schools why does nobody from this era now post on here. The stoney steps were drummed into me at the age of 11 I had to climb them I also remember Ruth herron old before her time and big Dorothy Willis and Sandra ball who always tried to be tough

Also everyone liked each other. Not like todayand I know David fear is dead but I want his name to live on and I want to celebrate what a brilliant class of beautiful girls and boys we had. We did not have much but we looked out for each other
