Sweeney the Holy Family that you talk about is between the Limestone Rd, Atlantic Ave and Duncairn Gdns.   Maybe Seos is talking about another one someplace near the Falls Rd as I don't remember either blokes. That was a long way away from St Patricks :)
Hugh when you left Belfast in 1972 did you come back before eventually settling near Dublin. :)

Sam Think you are probably right a different Holy Family sorry Seol. No when we came South in 72 we never went back have been here since Lived first  In Dublin Suburb and About 15 years ago moved to County Meath Beside Fairyhouse  Racecourse. The Queen has still one sister left in Belfast and i have a few Uncles and aunts so we try to visit as much as we can.Roads are much better now and i drive a better car so journey only takes about hour twenty Hope you are well and Looking forward to seeing Joe In Spain this summer

It would be good to see it kept open but it seems that noone is interested anymore.       :)  In relation to your business, my mother was the book keeper of the man who owned the Academy hairdressing school ( Can't remember his name ).    It was sad to see a great man like Billy O'Neill pass away. Is the school being used to educate particular years and other the older children educated at the girls school.    Gerry Camplisson's daughter is a teacher at the school or used to be.  Gerry was the same age as us and was in our class.( Were you and I in the same class because I think that we were.) :D

Same class Sam Started in 1a finished in 5A was prefect for most off them years Think still same age group at the school [Collage] Are you talking about young Pat O Neill  he was our age, didn't hear anything about him he had older brother who went to Holy Family with me his name was Hugh. Cant remember the guy who ran the  Hairdressing Acadamy but i think he was Jewish. I started serving my time in the Waldorf Carlisle Circus  John Mc Keown owned it He also had a school upstairs.My uncle rented the barbers shop from him Hugo Mc Collam from Cushendall a great character. So i started my time with him
