Well done apalachie I dont think Mcbrierty is there but you might be getting mixed up with a teacher who taught the same subjects. I dont want to give any names. I think probadly the hardest one is the one far right.
 
 
Well Dickie I can name a few, here goes,?, Marty Montgomery,Wee Ted, Basil Black, Mc Brierty,?
 back row ?,Blaney, not sure if that,s Big Sid, Price,and Harry Largey. What,s that clown Montgomery like,waster.
              Slan for now, Apalachie.
PS. Interested to know who the two outsiders are, I can,t recollect them, but then again you are older than me haha.
What a marvellous night for a Moondance

If I remember right think Big Sid had a saying
 
Bouncey, bouncey of the wallsie son
 
One day getting the Lead loaded strap of Monty, and not for the 1st time got many of him.
 
He made you put one hand on top of the other and took about a 2ft jump in the air before he hit you. I had my right
hand on top of my left, I always wear my watch on my left wrist, he busted my watch slapping me. But the best part was giving him the bill for repairs.

Big Sid had loads of sayins like that. My surname is McKinney and he used to address me as follows:    'McKinney-o, McKinney-o, who lost the ball-ee-o' I heard his dad was a cop and thats how he got his knickname (Big Sid the Copper's Kid') Does anyone know if thats true? I was at his da's funeral and don't remember any trappings that would have suggested this.

Well Stickyra, that,s the first time I ever heard that, when I was at the school he lived in Brookvale and was a regular in the CB club, in fact he ran the drama section,he currently lives just above me at the top of the Cavehill Rd but stranger things have happened though I doubt it.

Monty had to jump 2 feet in the air to get up to the normal height of a fifteen year old school boy, I worked in the CB club for a while and big Sid (Pat Catney was always a real gent to serve and not to shy with the tips either.

Hello XSean,
 
Big Sid, was probadly my favourite teacher got him for french, he made it interesting and entertaining. He would also do this over the top french nasal accent ello ello before its time. He was firm but fair and I could not say that about most other teachers, montgomery Jennings McGlade come to mind.
 
Did you work in the CB after you left school, I remember Stevie Caldwell worked there when we were at school. I worked down the road in the Phoneix Bar we all seemed to have part time jobs then.

Hi Sean, I see in your post to Dickie that you worked in the CB, 2 of my classmates, Stevie Williamson & Jim Herdman also worked in there at the time as well as big Anto Mc Allister,can you remember them.
                                                                                    Slan, APALACHIE.

ps BIG SID was a gent always very fair and I wouldn,t say that about most of them.
