The photo was taken for either first holy communion or confirmation and my guess is it was either 1953 or 1955. Some more possible names:
2nd row 7th from left - David Woods (Knockbreda Road)
2nd row 9th from left - Gerry Mooney
2nd row 4th from left - Brendan McKenna

Correction to earlier post: Hugh Dougal (Galwally Park)

That's the best I can do.

PS Who is Dub?

Hi Barry, I have lived in Dublin for almost 40 years now. I never went to Rosario, but I lived in Haywood Avenue and went to Bearnageea on the Antrim Road with a lot of the Rosario lads. My sister in law also went there. I also knew some of the girls who went there.
                                                                    All the best,Dub.
All the best, Dub.

50 years ago this month Rosario primary school closed for business.         In Sept. 1966 the new school,Holy Rosary opened in Sunnyside Crescent.

bjay, Where have the years gone?  50 years ago this month, I came down to Dublin as captain of a winning Irish team, ( but it wasn't football ).

Any Rosario girls out there?  Denis and Terry Sheils were first cousins of Kit, Charlotte, Harry, Pat, Gerald, and Maureen of Sunnyside St.  Maureen still going strong, et al RIP.  Her girlhood friends include Mary Teresa Cartan (empty cartan) and Margaret McCusker.  Would love to brighten her day with info on her old friends.  Believe one of them moved over by Shaw's Road area, not sure which.
(RC) Sheils Maxwell Magee - Antrim Belfast and Down Belfast, ?Aghagallon; Lundy McManus Murray - Saintfield, Ballynahinch, and Down Belfast

Was there any visits from a photographer to take yearly class photographs in Rosario?
I think this was a regular event in most schools.

I am surprised that this thread has moved back so far. Are there any class photos or contributors out there??
Just hoping to keep it alive.

Hi Dub, I have a photo of Mr Kennedy's class from about 1954.  But I can't figure out how to upload photos!  Can you please advise.

Mathew29 , tell Jackie we were in the same class in  Bearnageea  together,  he was a great friend of my late brother John and I spoke to him and you grandmother at my sister Ann's funeral in April.  He will know me from that. You are lucky to have a grandfather as good as Jackie.

Welcome to the forum MarkBel , there must be more memories and photos out there for posting on this thread.                             
                                                                                                                                                 All the best, Dub.
Hello Alex.
Sorry to hear about your sister.  In one of the earlier photos there was a photo of a class ( they have all gone ) in which I knew quite a few people.  One of them was Pat O'Hara.  Do you ever hear of him these days. :)
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

Hello SJ, I spoke with my brother this morning and he told me that Pat retired from the police and is now living near Cultra in Co. Down. He met him just over a year ago and he was in good health. He sees Pat,s younger brother every now and then as he lives at the very top end of the Ormeau Road.
