I lived at number 50 McDonnell st..we were right in the middle between Marchioness st and Ton st... neighbours were Murphys at 46, McAreaveys at 48, my grand ma's (Nolan) at 50. McAteers at 52 and Devlins at 54.. Mickey Monaghan was best Man at my Mom and Dad's wedding in 1939.. We moved to the westrock bungalows in 1949, went to Slate st school in 1945 until 1955, got the bus to school every day at the bottom of the Giant's foot after we left McDonnell St.

I saw kids crying and wetting themselves at the hands of Slattery as he called them vile names and beat them with a cane. A lad called Jimmy OHare and Jimmy Burns were two of his victims

The shop was Larry Merchants. He moved to St James and sadly was murdered by loyalist terrorists

The shop aws at the corner of marchioness st, it was owned by Murchan and Rice (Larry Murchan).  He originally came from Crossmaglen I believe.

I was there mid 50s to 1963. I just missed Mulligan’s class and had O’hara, Magee, Savage, Slattery, Burns, Snifter Gordon, Collins, but can’t remember any Sam Greer. Mulligan had his son in his class at the time and did indeed drive a Mayfair, a big boxy car. We had O’hara two years running. (what a nightmare) He was one of the sadists. I remember one year when we were getting into our teens he was laying into Woods, I think it was, when Woods’ two mates came to his rescue and had O’hara up against the wall. He turned white and just froze with terror. That made our day. Magee (Geezer) always made us laugh with his stories and his accents taking the mickey out of somebody. He drove an old Morris Minor, Lic. PZ 112, and sometimes gave us Ballymuckers a lift as he lived out Hannastown way. (We actually lived in Highfield). Slattery was indeed a sadist. He had my younger brother’s hands in welts most days. My ma would go down and lay into him with some colourful language. Gordon was pretty fair and didn’t have any ‘pet’ boys like the others. Burns taught the final year boys so wasn’t game to take them on as some of us were pretty big by then. I remember he and a female teacher, Miss McCann I seem to recall, they were a tall couple, canoodling at the back of the bus one night coming from the Forum cinema. Didn’t think a Slate Streeter would be that far out catching them at it. The headmaster’s name that I recall was Murtagh, not Murdock that people seem to think. Paddy McVeigh’s son worked with my dad in Isaac Agnew’s VW dealership. Three boys and three girls from our family went there.
