Bearnageeha was once home of the Langtry family. I presume this is the Langtry family that became connected through the marriage of one of their members with the daughter of Very Reverend William Corbet Le Breton, Dean of Jersey. This Mrs Langtry became better know as the actress Lillie Langtry.

lillie langtry lived at porchester square, in london. itwas a council  tenement in the early seventies, but , the hype merchants transfomed the district when they latched on to lillie.

I was a dinner lady at Barney, my offical positon was assistant cook. I trained at College of Bis catering dept  doing City & Guilds food prep for 2 years and then a certificate in supervisory management. I was destined for big things(??), at one point I applied and passed the entrance exam for the British army, I had my test and interview out at Hollywood, plan was to join the caterin Corp. but my path changed course and I ended up in the schools for 12 years,worked in north Belfast & had the best of craic, managing a kitchen of 12 staff churning out 550 meals a day. When I came to Oz I worked in a nursing home in the kitchen but it didn't work well with having the kids so I gave that up . Still find cooking theraputic :)

I still meet up with lads I've managed to contact over the years.   Pat McClean, Frankie Metcalfe, Jackie Duffin, Peter Priviledge, Brian O'Reilly, Alex Smylie and Noel O'Kane .   Always trying to locate other old boys from our days there.   Cannot remember Downey but my memory isn't what it was after 44 years !!!!

Will ask the lads next time we have a get-together in the Beaten Docket facing the Europa hotel
