I think a lotta people felt like you about the builder  . . . and for a time we thought he had!!  But they're up at the roof now so it won't be too long before there are residents.  Very limited car space inside so all will be parking in the Crescent.  Mayhem!!  I pity the people living round about.  But I guess this is what they call "progress"  ???   ???   ???

 
 
have the numbers going to mass increased any of late ?

Hi,
Just wanted to clarify that the photo of boys from 1957. My brother George Gent is in the front row 3rd from the left as stated, he died in Larne in 2004, my other brother Roy Gent who attended same school, died in car accident in 1981 in Co. Louth, Ireland.  I also attended from 1965 to 1971.  I remember moving to the new school and the pupils coming from Lagan Village.  Myra Thompson and Geraldine Eccles joined our class.  I also remember Elaine Lundy. My family left Belfast in 1972 as did many others.

actually they did increase quite a lot when the polish people started to live in the area and we nearly had a full house on a Sunday.  However, the Polish now have their own mass and so we are diminished again, struggling to survive!!

Another photo of St Anthony's boys, thanks to the archives of John Howard (front row, far right)!!  This was a trip to Dublin in 1958.  Anyone remember it?
