Completely forgot about the home but when I come to think of it I can place it my mind if you know what I mean, also remember playing the grounds as a child

Hi Alan
I think I might have been there when you were.  You mentioned a Noel Orr in a previous post, did you mean Campbell Orr?  My name was John Wardlow back then and my brother Fred was there for a while to.  Please email me at [email protected], if you'd be happy to answer some questions for me.
Thanks a lot
John

Hi everyone my brother and I where in Bawnmore from 1958 to 1965 we went
to Ballygolan primary and then Dunlambert I also remember Jim Crozier he was in Bawnmore at the same time as us. If anyone wants to know anyone else that was in bawnmore I may be able to help with names it is a long time ago but I still remember most of the boys that where there at that time. Jackie and Beryl smyth where in charge of bawnmore at that time. I then went into Kincora my brother went to Kincora the year before me.
