Hi,
Lots of memories on here but mostly from people who went there before my time.

Anyone go to St Anthony's in the 70s? I was there from 72-79. By the time I left it had amalgamated with the boys school (only just in 1979 I think). Think Sr Bernadina left sometime during my time there and was replaced by a kinder nun. What was her name? I remember having a very nice lady teacher in P7 (1979). She had grey hair and wore it in a bun. Name anyone?
Anyone remember the trips to the states. I spent 6 weeks in Buffalo there in the summer of 79. Great times that took us out of the terrible situation.
In my class I remember a few names  Patricia Curliss (emigrated to Australia I think - she lived near me in the Glensharragh/Rochester area), Susan McKusker (there were 3 McKusker girls - lived in Merok Pk/Gdns), Christina Clifford. Anyone remember any of these people. I'm sure I'd remember more if my memory was jogged.

I remember the school dinners and the nun/nuns went round making you eat everything whether you liked it or not - cause there were starving black babies to think about we weren't to be wasteful!! Lumpy custard/semolina/tapioca anyone?? Still cannot eat those things to this day!
I went there with my sister and brothers - Martins.
My mum's family also went there in the 30s and 40s. They were Mullens from Ravenhill Avenue.

Would like to ask Brian Gent (Gentie) if he could give me some information about Marie his sister.Brian I have been trying to trace Marie for years with no luck.I spoke to your wife Pauline about six or seven years ago but all she could tell me was that Marie was now called O'Brien and that she lives in Dundalk.I was always very very fond of Marie and still think alot about her.Im sure you don't remember but we met a couple of times when I was with Marie.My name is Stuart Neill and if you could help me in any way I would be very grateful.Thank You.
