Sorry to hear about your brother meeting a terrible violent end to his life

The original name change was to I believe "Trinity College". It came as a surprise to find it was called Blessed Trinity . Seems a strange name for a school . I always add either a smiley face or another symbol at the end of a post 😎

Its a Catholic School. Trinity in connection with the blessed trinity. The father, the son and the Holy Ghost.
Blessed indeed.
It was always to be called 'Blessed Trinity', as used in our Catholic faith.
How do you find the name strange then, given the terms significance in Our Catholic faith??
Do you not like the term??
Are you upset at the school, being proud of its Catholic ethos and tradition??

Tours I went to St Patrick's.   I take it that you went to St Pats.  The terms Holy Trinity and Blessed Trinity mean much the same.   I have no bone to pick with you so you just misunderstood my post.    ;)

I see that the name of the school is not Trinity College but Blessed Trinity college.   Who picked that name ?? :D
No. I don't think I misunderstood you at all. Hmm
The language you used and this particular emoji says it all really.
Anybody would have wondered, at your words etc, as I have.
I just wonder what was going through your mind when you said it??
You don't seem able or want to explain.
Your not standing over your own words.
Fair enough.
I was wondering if you where having a pop at my beloved Irish Catholic Faith.
I suppose I will never know.
Good luck. God Bless.
Ps: If 'Trinity' and 'Blessed Trinity' mean the same, then why your question of who picked the name, in the first place???
You sound as if you have a problem with the 'Blessed' part.
By the way, they are very much not the same terms.
The term 'Blesssed' for practicing Roman Catholics, estolls a far more spiritual special meaning. A place where great graces are given and are made.
Fitting for a Roman Catholic School.
Especially in these turbulent times in the World.
Our precious faith, a guard for our precious children. Blessed indeed.

Tours go and find someone else to argue with.  DID YOU GO TO THE SCHOOL.?  If not I can completely ignore you.  Did you have a bad experience while a student? ;)

Sweeney.
Here is a link to an article on Images from old Belfast where you certainly look as if you need a haircut.

NAME THAT TEACHER - IF YOU CAN
Can anyone put names to these dear people.
 
I think its Mr Tully - seated - extreme left
 
and maybe Mrs O'Reilly (seated - fourth from left)
 
Harry to her left?

Just joined. Is there any chance someone could re-post the photograph without the obscuring watermark. If not if anyone can post a similar staff photograph from say 1979.
It is hard to recognise the teachers but would assume it would include: Wee Toot (Campbell); Caesar McKeown (Geography); Already identified Harry but I prefer his term-of-endearment nick-name Dick Emery (Metalwork) great teacher; Wee Doc (Docherty) Careers Advisor; Wee Wee Doc (Docherty's son) excellent Mathematics teacher; Mr Kerr the form teacher - making ginger hair fashionable; Mr Kelly (Physics) who took 3 months to show Potassium dissolves in water and turns it purple; Miss Nicholls - golfing fanatic (science/physics); Mrs Parker - the English departments much reduced answer to Margaret Rutherford. Then there was the new blood: the very glamorous Mrs Gilmartin (very happily married) in the english department. Her real-life brother taught Religious Education at Barny. I don't remember Mrs O'Reilly but I do remember one of the staff was called Sinead O'Reilly. Would be interested to know what ever happened to her.

Harry Enright use to have a saying, "Say what you mean, mean what you say."
It always struck with me, going through life. It's very good advice.
I will leave it at that.

About half way through this thread is where the photo sits at the moment and  the owner hopefully will repost it but you might be able to do it yourself .
I can name all of the older teachers as I left in 1962.    When were you at the school and do you recall any of the people in your class.  In recent times Billy O'Neill, Sean Fulton, Sean Salters & Harry Enwright have died. :)   Sam.

I just learnt today of the death of Joe Tully.  Joe died on Tuesday the 8th of July.
He started in Barney in Sept 1958 and left in June 1963.
Joe was a regular for years at the Barney Boy's reunion and will be sadly missed by his old friends.
R.I.P. Joe.

Thanks Alex. .Sweeney Todd ( Hugh ) who sposts on this thread aften met Joe in Spain but last year Joe wasn't there. I only knew him for a short time at the school but he made an impression on me,  Later in late 1970's I worked in the same building as Joe at the back of the City Hall when he was an architect and then in recent times we met in Belfast.  When you meet people some seem to drain you and others leave something with you and Joe always left something.  I am sorry to hear of his passing....Sam
He was very friendly witha bloke called Kavanagh
