As regards Barney.  I was same class as Leonard Holmes from 65 to 70.  I did another year for an A level but I think that was the last time I saw Leonard.

Sweeney, knew Morelands from Lepper St. Tommy was the father, knew Maura & Adelaide best, Mrs Moreland was a lovely woman.

He was in my class for a long time and his cousin Laurence Bannon was in 1b maybe. On the New Lodge I think that they both died sometime ago. I could be mistaken.
Hopefully some other old timers NBC's will see this and make contact.  How did the book sales go.  Have I left it too late.  I saw your photo on the old barbers thread which was good.  I read Joe Tully,s obituary .  He might have been in Dub,s class
Keep safe  :)

I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

Remember Laurence he went to Holy Family with me Also heard that Seamus Leich who used to live on the Road his dad clwaned all the brass stuff and had it in the window off his shop Died in New york a good few years ago. Book sales went very well we had a second print off them Done but much slower. They will sell through our own outlets.

Yes sJ, Joe was in my class. We both started on the same day and were good class mates. He was a fantastic runner at the school sports. Joe later qualified as an architect.  We lost contact for many years as we got on with our own lives.  In more recent years we met up several times with the Barney boys and then he wasn't able to attend as he was away in his house in Spain a lot.  When I heard that he had died I was shocked, as I never knew that he was ill.
                                                                                                                                               All the best, Dub.

Have you noticed that recently many of the other Secondary school built about the same time have been demolished or rebuilt.
The boys model has gone and also Stella Maris.  St Gabriels & Dunlambert school. :)

SJ , I was in the school just before it was renamed Trinity College. I took photos at the time and was given special access by the principal to the classrooms and facilities. I was very impressed with what I had seen. It is now a twenty first century school.
                                                                               All the best, Dub.

Some of those other schools also didn't have enough students but on the outside from the Antrim Road the school does look a bit tired. :)
