Seeking old friends from Hemsworth Square school
« on: September 03, 2011, 06:46:56 PM »
I went to Hemsworth from 1957 until 1961. Any contact from old friends is welcome. I used to live in Fortingale Street.

Hi Altoni, I was in Mrs. Shaw's, Freda Reid's and Daddy Glass's class. Did you know that Mr. Millar, who was a student teacher then, now resides in Canada. I also lve in Canada and I met him at a place where I worked not too long ago?

Hi Altoni, It's great discussing the old days at Hemsworth. I came to Canada back in 1969, and I live in a small town north of Toronto. I never regretted moving considering the situation in Belfast at that time, but sometimes I sure feel homesick.

Hi Altoni, I can't seem to recall the names you mentioned. I lived at the Agnes Street end of Fortingale. I remember Maclurg, the Halls, the Rankins, the Macauleys, and the Orrs. I guess old age is creeping up on me.
