hi Olelad, i remem the guy your talkin bout looked like he was auditioning for the dubliners but im afraid i dont remember his name i think he was arelief teacher who came to replace Harry Hart who had a couple of periods of sickness , there was also a young guy ,again cant remember his name who taught us for a while , who played a guitar and taught us a couple of songs, the only other male teacher we had was Brian Gallagher lived in Rosebery Rd, Soz cant be of more help . Happy Xmas to everyone from or on the woodstock/cregagh :smile:

cant remember that guitar playing teacher at all ! the other guy probly went on to play with the dubliners alright  :D  he was a pain thats for sure. think everyone would remember brian gallagher and him been a right tuff nut. heard he went to omagh and runs a betting shop down there.
again a happy xmas and new year (may we have many of them) to all our woodstock/cregagh folk wherever you may be now

Hi
 
They did not go as far as Downpatrick - left in 72 -they were a bit closer than that though.
 
Shop went to Jim Burns who ran it for a while - probably until the area was redeveloped?
 
Jim also had a shop on Woodstock Road and use to run bingo in St mathews
 
I remember that shop very well!

i argued that the artist guys name was mcmullan. clem will confirm this. althought there was another guy in the class called mcmullan and it was one of the guys who came over with him from lagan village who give us that name. one to argue over  :D

brian grant wasnt in our class . he was a year older than us. as for micky o neil and danny burns i cant remember those names. in saying that we said we were short about 4 or 5 names of completing the classes full reg so maybe thats 2 of the names which we forgot ?

Would that be the Danny Burns who emigrated to Canada? (British Columbia)....TC
