Hello, I remember John Wallace (R.I.P.), he was a pupil at St Anthony's while I was there. He also went to St Augustines Sec School. He died in a motorcycle accident on the Knock Road, Belfast not far from his home in Clonduff area. I was a motorcyclist and I remember being surrprised as I had never known John to ever have ridden a motorbike prior to hearing of the accident.  I was told at the time that he had been riding a Honda CB250 bike and was in a head on collision with a car. Sorry I can't remember any more about John but maybe this will jog others memories about him. Hope you get more replies and info.

id guess danny would be 56/57. i remember him going to mass at st anthonys and that was about it. roadhog would know his age as they went 2 school together. is he still in twinbrook ?

as for east belfast been in co down. seems the whole of short strand these days follow antrim !? but your right its in co down. been a north belfast lad ill stick to antrim  :D

Olelad, Danny would be around the 56/57 mark. As I was born in the short strand I can boast that Down have won 5 all Irelands. But as I am an adopted Armargh man, having been living in Lurgan since 1975, I can boast that between Armargh and Kerry, we have 37 :D
