Hi Rose,getting back too St Anthonyís news.
Saw picture of Father Courtney,after he officiated at my sister Ceciliaís wedding in August 1963.
It was from her mini wedding album.
Some shots from inside church,brought back a lot of memories.

The only Cecilia I knew was McNally, that wasnít her was it? Yes Fr Courtney married us as well. He was so lovely and was always helpful and kind ....they donít make them like that any more, I believe itís not a vocation now but a job 😷  I met a niece of his a couple of years ago and she said all her cousins were meeting up and they didnít have a photo of him. I was able to make a copy of him at our wedding which she was delighted with.  He died soon after leaving St Aís at Glenravel in Co Antrim and is buried there on the bank of  a little river.

fear not everyone ive seen the light :D . tbh im fed up posting about games here there and everywhere. ill be doing it on my messages from now on. but just to add to the sporting front. marty think you might know about this. I remember going to watch a glentoran team not sure if it was the 2nds, 3rds or youth team playing but the games was played at a pitch not far from ladas dr cop shop. when u came out from daddy winkers u turned left on to ladas dr and then I think u took first turn on the left. after that I cant remember a think except that it wasn't that far a walk. the pitch itself was on its own. houses were around each side of it and it was defo a glentoran team that played there as I remember them wearing the famoue white top with the red, green and black hoops . anyone know what you called the ground/pitch , is it still there? and was there any name to the area it was.

I know, itís not fair to generalise, but have met a number of them in the past 20years that def do not seem like shepherds looking after their flock. Och but sure arenít the Drs just the same now too🤪🤪🤪 Seen the time you knew your Dr and they knew you (Grumpy ole woman 👵) 😂

I seem to remember a pitch at the back of the Tech on Montgomery Rd which extended down to Ladas Drive with a gate there. I think in later years the Scouts had a group there. So that would have been near the Barracks and across the road from Daddy Winkers (now Gibson Park Avenue)
