Does anyone know of a Jimmy & Roy Adams who may have attended Mountcollyer School..they lived top end of Glencollyer St around 1950.
Also I have tried to get info about the bomb damage 1941 to top end Mountcollyer St. My Gran [who lived back to back to these houses.. on Glencollyer St] told me about this bombing.

I went to Mountcollyer from about 65 to 69, I was a paperboy and used to deliver Mr Powers papers , also his mums she lived at 66 Upper Cavehill Road. He used to give me a lift back down the road so I would not be late for school. Does anybody remember Mr Stevenson (Stabo) the english teacher  and his cane in the cupboard , I felt that across my hands a few times.

Does anyone remember a Jean Craig from Collyer Street? She would have went to MountCollyer sometime in the early 60s?

I didn't go to Mounty. It was inferior to Dunlambert and I was scared of girls.
Mr Shanks or Shanksy taught in Castle High after the schools amalgamated around the early - mid eighties. ;)

Sorry to let you know that Mr Hale died around 1967 and he was quite young.  My name is Harry Mulholland... if anyone knows me do not hesitate to contact me.

Hi Harrymul, I went to Mounty between 1962 to 1966, Billy Hale was my woodwork and RE teacher, I left in June 66. He must have been a relatively young man when he died, at the time of my experience of him I did not have a liking for him or his methods, however with experience and in hindsight I can now respect what I think he was trying to do with me, I was not an easy child. I seem to remember knowing that he started in the Shipyard and educated himself later, and so was deserving of respect for that, but I can still remember getting hit with any scrap of wood which was laying around the woodwork room. A very belated RIP

Hi Mounty
Thanks for reply to my posting of Sept 09. The Neil family are not related to me. I wonder if they moved into113 and replaced my relatives there.
Some of the info I gave in 2009 was wrong so I am correcting it now.
The end house was no 113. My Aunt/Uncle Molly Turkington + James Adams (bus driver) & 2 cousins lived there.
My grandparents Turkington lived at 107 Glencollyer St.
