Does anyone remember the O'Neills from Jamaica Street?  I think they were some sort of scrap dealers. They lived next door to my grannies. I think one of them was called cloot O'neill because he was left handed. They lived at number 85 Jamaica Street. There was also Hughie O'Neill and Pauline O'Neill. Hughie was always invited to wakes as he was a bit of a live wire and a joker.

He was my Maths teacher in St. Gabes when I was there for a year. He was a big hefty guy who wore glasses and had a high pitched voice. His wife was a contralto in Holy Cross Choir and his son Gavin was an alto. Gavin is now high up in one of the education bodies. Other teachers I recall were:-
Mr. O'Neill , Woodwork;  Mr McKenna , Science;  Mr. McGuinness , Music ; his namesake was the Head; Mr. McLaughlin , Metalwork; Mr. Rams den , P.E. ; Mr. Kearns , English ; Mr. Thornton , French.
That is all I can remember  at the moment.
