I went to Lagan Village around 1954. I only have vague memories of the school. From what I can remember there were three classrooms on the ground floor. There was a corridor whch ran along outside these classrooms. The toilets were across the playground. I left about 1956 and went to Oxford Street.

i alway thought it was one large room on the ground floor with stairs stuck in the middle leading up to god knows what. but then again i was only at the place a few times.

i dont know what happened to vinty but it is interesting that a former pupil of st anthonys now lives in his old home on the mountpottinger road.

i seem to remember the name in large letters (maybe red) and im sure harry told us at the reunion he used to have afew swift halfs in there from time 2 time.

does anyone know whatever became of vinty ? maybe some of the guys from the strand might know ? i seem to remember hearing he had to retire early due to ill health ?

Yes spacetinker I remember three of those lads - Kevin Doherty, John Murray and Alex Duggan. Like myself, John and Alex both lived in Madrid Street. Kevin lived off Thompson Street - I can't remember the name of the actual street.

Hi JR56,
Yes that is my uncle John.  As a child he lived at number 78 Tullyard Way.  I would be very interested to hear any news you could tell me of him.  He was only 16 when he died in '72, and I was only 6.  I was told he was my "guardian angel".  I will try to send you a personal message on this forum and would greatly appreciate anything about him that you could share with me.  I would post a picture I have of him from from St. Anthony's but I can't work out how to do it :-(
Thanks in advance from North America.

Hi Smith 19. .Tullyard way is in a estate at the top of the castlereagh road where it meets the knock dual carriageway.Up until 1972 there were between 55-70 catholic families in the estate of about 360 houses.Most of the kids from these families went to st anthonys  as this was the parish.Some people called the place clonduff estate.
