"First communion" at St Anthony's 1953
 
Photo taken in the grounds.
 

Another great photo of St Anthony's kids.  :smile: Hope you don't mind me capturing it for my school album, Tink?  Been a bit busy lately but hoping to get all the school photos posted soon on the church website. ;) Btw, who was the teacher in the fancy hat??

I don't believe there was ever a parish team, but there was a school team, see posting by Rose8 on 6 March, run by Mr.Harte. I do not know how long he carried on after I left in 1953.

 
i knew of gaelic been played at school although not in my time at the school. it was the parish itself i was wondering about.

Hi Rose8,
 
The kids here are actually from "Lagan Village" school having their first communion at St Anthony's...though most of them went on to St.Anthony's boys later.  and you can see some in the class photo previous. The Lagan village teacher was a "Miss Cardigan".
 
You are very welcome to save and keep the piccie.  .Tink

Well done Tink, this photo puzzled me greatly, for I left St.Anthony's in 1953 and did not recognise one of these lads. Not surprising as you point out, they were from Lagan Village. Thanks for the clarification.

Hi JB,
if it's Lagan Village you are researching, there is some information on the church website (Link below) "History of our Schools".  If you have anything you can add to the history or if any of it is incorrect I'd be glad to add or change it.

no records were ever handed into the education board. none in public records either.
a school of though was back in the day a principle would take the regs home and maybe stick them in the roof space or shed etc. years later he dies then family come along and clear the house out and either throw the paper work out or never come across it at all. another family move in and maybe come across it and as its nothing to them dump it ?!   :swoon:

Olelad and Rose8
 
much obliged for your kind input. Many many thanks. I left Lagan Village and went to St Patricks Grammar School in Kings road Gilnahirk. This was a pretty new school which I started in 1967 i think . It was a pretty new school because I remember most of the class rooms were portacabins. As i mentioned earlier I am from Castlereagh . My family was put out of there in 73 and we moved to England where I still live but come home regularly (6/7 times a year)
 
By the way Oleboy I (think) notice you support the blues. I caught that bug myself around 67 . As i said i lived in castlereagh and played for a kids football team run by 2 guys called tom and jack mc'connell i think it was. we played games over in England with other kids teams and visited liverpool regularly
 
Im still researching lagan village by the way and will move on to research St Patricks in due course. Should either appear further on your radar Id Be MOST OBLIGED to hear
 
 
THANKS  AGAIN
