thanks for any help

We lived in Francis St around 1940 until we moved to Andersonstown about 1950
anyone remember the Mc Cleaves,Duffys,Mc Canns the Aulds ,Downeys Big Nelly, mcCaffertys
Burns
Everybody went to St Anthony's School Jean Auld went on to sing in the Fiesta and oneof the mc Cafferty's
done himself proud in boxing
The masters were O'Brian O'Shea Mc Carthy Mc Fadden and Miss O'Doherty
Mc Carthy was a bit of a bully and liked nothing better than a excuse to get out the strap
one day it got a bit much for Mr O Shea who then fought with Mc Carthy until the head O'Brian stopped it
Mc Carthy finally got dismissed 
tO this day I really believe that if had been allowed to continue he would have caused serious injury's
to some of us

Emmanuel, I attended Miss McAlinden's funeral at St Mary's On the Hill. Former principals of St Anthony's Daniel Eugene Magill and Leo Collins were there. Maureen McDonnell, a former teacher at the school, was also there.

Miss McAlinden's family came from Portadown and it is in a family plot there that she was interred.

My mother Martha Brady and her sister Peggy from Carrickhill went to St Anthony's. They were born 1928 and 1930 so should be in records from mid 1930s to mid 1940s. My mother talked about being taught by two sisters who were teachers during her time there. Any info or photos from this era would be appreciated.

You must mean the legendary McDermott sisters. I have supplied photos covering life at the school between 1974-1985 and I, too, would love to see photos from an earlier time.
