I get the impression you do not miss the place. In truth, neither do I. When I walked out the gates for the last time in May 81 I never looked back. All I have left is the school scarf which was made from a very nice wool and proved very effective over many winters. One of my daughters has it now.

It is fun to reminisce about it, but now that the building is gone I have no connection to it any more. The new building means nothing to me, it is just another faceless building.

Thank you for posting the pictures. Although I missed the demolition, it was nice to see it through your camera.

You're right, I don't miss the place. I left in June 1981 and I still have a prefect's blue tie. Old building or new, everytime I go past that place, I curse it. In fact I call it the polished "Richard the Third". What really irks me about it now is their motto, "Continuing in the pursuit of excellence".  I can't tell you what I think of that without swearing.

I'm glad you liked the pictures. I enjoyed shooting them.

The last two pictures - shot on August 10, 2010.

[size=78%]Another chunk ripped from the assembly hall. It's interesting to see how one dinosaur predates another. After taking this shot, I left and returned just over an hour later. The building had been flattened completely. I missed seeing it looking terribly [/size][size=78%]crestfallen[/size][size=78%] - hur, hur, hur. It didn't take the people who demolished the school long to clear up the rubble. Inside of a week or so, all trace of the old building had been erased.[/size]

Another important read.

http://www.judecollins.com/2020/08/noah-donohoe-scandal-and-failure-by-the-state-office-of-the-police-ombudsman-by-donal-lavery/

This whole case has been scandalous as far as the Police input is concerned.


Distasteful language imo is being used in that article.
" returned to his Mother,  alive "
So who had he that could " return " him?
Oh yes, of course as has been said on Social Media them ums, the Prods.
" suspicious circumstances "
Did the Police not say there were none?
Foul play not suspected.
Also I see a lot of Justice for Noah posts.
That clearly implies once again he was killed and once again the sectarian posters are blaming the evil Protestants.
