St.Teresa's primary school AndersonstownHas
« on: January 14, 2019, 06:56:13 PM »
Has anyone a photograph of st.Teresa's primary school ,1940s \ 1950s. The playground had a river crossing it.
Access to our wooden hut classrooms was a small bridge.
The river crossed under Glen road and down behind upper Bernagh Drive and towards Greece walk.
Also photograph  of St.Teresa's Chapel same period and before the ball was built.
Any help appreciated,thank  you.

Can you speak Spanish/Spainnis. ? I'm not a fan of facebook, and for some unknown reason it seems to think at the moment that I'm Spanish,... yesterday it was Hindi. ! :)

Perhaps you might have better luck with it.   Ah, just got it to speak English.  :)

"An old photo of St. Teresa's looking down the Glen Road."

"On the right is the land that would become Coolnasilla (Cúil na Saileach, 'Corner of the Sallow trees'). In the foreground on the left, at the opening to St. Teresa's Primary School, was a river that flowed under the road and emerged in a rich meadow where bluebells lined its banks the whole way down to the main country (Andersonstown) road, marking out the line of the future Bearnagh Drive.

Between 1951\ 1959.  I probably was one of the strenuous at most  of weddings, funerals, first communion, confirmations, at
St.Teresa's chapel,

Maybe if  lucky  10 shilling note at weddings,  and half a crow

from  some  funerals.
Fr.Shaun McClaffery .  would always give you  something   at these services,  and at Christmas.
Fr. Shaun  drove  us in    his  Volkswagen car  for the opening at
St.Agnes chapel  Andersonstown  Road, and  up to The  Rock chapel  at. Dundrod.
So if your relatives  have  wedding  photos .inside  chapel  and  you can see the   strenuous  I  was  probably  one  of. them.
