What can you say about St Augustines,  Remember Oul Sticky the wood work teacher, McCann that taught Tech Drawing?
and the VICE that used to roam  around looking for anyone he coud find to belt. and the Principal, Mr McKeown, then ther was bertie Fulton the football player then there was that lunitic teacher MADDEN who was Mad on Rugby, I would love to meet up with that drop kick to this day. Some of my class mates were Ken Lennon, Micky O'Neil, Danny McKnight, Jimmy Stitt,Tony McCann and many more whose names have left me for trying to think of them. Love to hear from anyone from St Augustines.

Didn't go to St. Augustines but went to Bearnageeha in 1965. A lot of my school mates from Rosario went there. the memory not the best but a lot of the names sounded familiar. I'm sure Bernard Mc Court from Whithall was at Rosario with me.
I think Paul and Barry Mitchell from 67 Haypark Avnue went there (possibly from 1966 and Barry probably 1968).
One of my mates went there for a few years as an art teacher in the late 70's - Brendan Lynch. Anyone remember him - I think he went back to England to teach.

Cheers

I lived in the short strand and when to lagan village school until I was 11.

I was at lagan village until 1963 then I went to St Monicas.  I didn't think anyone would remember lagan village school as I tried to source information about it, to no avail.

  Giannineo,  Eddie used to live in the terrace houses next to McGlades garage, just above Rossetta.  He was a good hard working lad, who when he started working for himself , would have taken on jobs that others would have refused,( he was not afraid to get his hands dirty ).  I am away from Belfast for over 30 years,but the last I heard of him he had a successful building company. The best of luck to him.
                                                                                                                       All the best, Dub.

I went to it it was in Richardsons street directly facing our house, I was born in 63. was saint monicas a secondary school? i remember leavibg lagan village and went toanother primary school it had nuns and the uniform was grey pinafore and pink shirt, I always thought it was saint monicas but if that was a secondary school there is no chance lol we left Richardsons street in 69. just before i turned 6.

im sure teap we discussed this b4, but lagan village like st anthonys east belfast seem to have fallen foul of any history been wrote up on them ??!!  st anthonys does get a mention in a parish history but i cant remember lagen village getting a mention.
my cousin john mcmanus went there up untill it closed 67? b4 transfering over to st anthonys. lagan village was made up of pupils from the lower woodstock and short strand. agood few went into my class at st anthonys and went onto st augustines.  id love to see afew photos of the place. like st anthonys knocked down and forgotten about except by those of us who went there.

    H, Giannineo, I haven't seen or heard of  Speedy McGill  for about 40 years, His older sister Noreen used to be part of the gang when we all used to hang out together at the top of the Ormeau Road.
Speedy went to St Patrick's on the Antrim Road, like me, but was a year or so behind me. I spoke to Noreen his sister about 1984 in an hotel outside Downpatrick where she was working. She was then married. Do you know what Speedy is doing now or where he is ?
                                                                               All the best, Dub.
