The P1-3 classes went to Crawfordsburn Country Park for their summer trip. This photo dates from around 1984. I don't know the names of the children but two look like members of the Johnstone/Magee families.

Peter, the photos that I have put on this site all date from 1974 to 1985. There is a photo here from around 1947 which features pupils from the girl's school. I don't recall any families with that name during the period when I was there.

BTW are you related to my late uncle Peter Garland who hailed from Whiterock Gardens?

Peter, it's a pity you didn't get to meet my mum who had so many stories of the Whiterock area and its many characters during the war years. I was a regular visitor to our grandparents house in the 1950's and early 1960's. Our uncle Brendan has a great knowledge of local and family history. When I asked him what he was doing on 23rd February, 1959, he couldn't remember. He was my sponsor on that day for Confirmation.

Earlier this year I met her at Jim Garland's funeral in St Teresa's Church. I hadn't seen her since she was a child.

I didn't realise that you had met my parents. Mum always had great stories to tell about the blitz in 1941. She and one of her sisters once sheltered in Naoise O'Haughan's cave (reputedly) on the Black Mountain with many Whiterock people sleeping rough nearby. But, this is the wrong thread for discussing these things. Sorry, people!
