I remember a couple of times when we were kids and protestant friends coming to mass for one reason or another, going out later on or whatever. One or two of them went on to have illustrious careers in various loyalist groups. It’s like the time I went to join the Boys Brigade with a prod mate, was told it was protestant only outfit. I don’t know if that was their official position or just a local (Ravenhill Avenue) one.


id think it was was official m8, but not sure ?????

Kerr's lived at 247 Woodstock Road, just below My Lady's Road. The father was a fishmonger, and the boys would have attended the school.

I remember Bobby Kerr- got to know him when he came over to Manchester to study to become a teacher. -I think he eventually settled in Canada.

There was a guy from the parish went to Manchester to train as a teacher around that time. Lived on the Cregagh Road not far above Bell's Bridge, just past the row of shops.  Went to 'Gusties.

There were quite a few lads from Belfast and N.I. in general came to study education in Manchester around that time.
