It was the same in Carysfort. Such prejudices. Even though I was not from there we were perceived as from the tenements in Georges Ave wher my mother had grown up. I thrived better in Dominican.

Mrs morris from Highthorn was a Rocker and a friend of my mothers never knew the children.

Dennis was indeed a Harbour Constable and heavily involved with Cuala.
He was my son's mentor. Dennis is alive and well and living in Monkstown
Farm. A couple of years ago the Historical Society had an article on the
Harbour Police and I think his father was featured.

Thanks folks for the info re Denny - I have not seen him since those schooldays, long time. I hope he is keeping well in the Farm.
As I recall, and please correct me if otherwise, streaming was very much in use in the Primary....there were two or three classes for each year. There was a top class, a middle one and maybe even a third one.

Another name I remember from my Primary schooldays in The Brothers is that of
Harry Catchpole.
He lived up Mulgrave Street I think, not far from another classmate
Dennis? Brock.
The Brocks had a retail business up Mulgrave Street I think, builders supplies maybe, not sure.

Zirco,
Your Morris's name is Shay and he lives a few doors from me in Watson's Killiney/Ballybrack? and takes his pleasure in the Graduate. His brother Paul was in my class in Eblana...a very bright guy...he also has a sister Jacinta who was really seriously clever. His Dad was well known throughout the borough for his involvement in schoolboy football...Joe's with the Revo..I can remember all the names you mentioned...Ritchie Farrell's sister in particular...she was beautiful!,
'though I can't for the life of me remember a McGovern's pub on Mounttown,so,I take it you mean McCormack's.Your stories and reminiscences are great, please keep it going and by the way are your initials C K ??

Ah yes! Shay, of course....tks for all the feedback slipper. McGovern's pub should be McCormack's pub, sorry.
I had an aunt and uncle living in Highthorn. Sheila Higgins owned and ran the ladies hair salon in Monkstown, a few yards from the Catholic church.

Brock's was in Patrick Street, not Mulgrave Street.
Catchpole's lived in Mulgrave Street and the father
had his repair shop in Patrick Street.
A son and a daughter of this family live in Ballybrack
they are the younger two.
PM me if you want to be remembered to Dennis

Mr. Catchpole was a mechanic and a very good one by
all reports. His repair shop was where the Veterinary
Practise is on Patrick Street.

Sorry to hear that, Denis. It's getting to the stage now where one is afraid to ask about anybody, for fear of what the answer might be.

I can remember Denny Byrne also he danced in the Parochial Hall years before the Church burned down knew he was into G A A more than soccer so had'nt much sporting conversation with him just talked about girls :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi Jabra,
As mentioned in Zirco's recent post and in posts I put up on here, there was a streaming system employed by the Brothers in primary i.e.there was an ABC class for most years. I spent my final year in room no.10 with Bro. Dobbins, names that I recall and with whom I had most contact:
G Murnaghan, J Connolly RIP J McCann, D Proctor,R Traynor,J Vance,J Hayden B Byrne and others T Kelly, P Morris, D kelly, T Ferris, D Lynch P Longmore & P Maguire RIP and of course yourself !

Was that Paul Maguire who was confined to a wheelchair following an accident ? If so, I didn't know he passed away, R.I.P.

Keeper
The P Maguire Slipper mentioned was Peter Maguire. He joined a seminary when he left school but bailed out after a year or two.His brother Liam was
the one in the wheelchair and he died many years ago . I never knew Sean O'Dowd died R.I.P. I played in the same St Joseph's team as Sean. He lived
in the first house on the left as you enter Highthorn Park No 1 as far as I remember. Others I remember from that 6th class were Donal and Derek Proctor
they were first cousins. Donal lived in Pearse Gardens in the Noggin. there was Joe Whealan R.I.P Martin Porter R.I.P. Noel Brock Sean (Plum) Pearse Noel
White Mick Byrne and all the lads mentioned by Slipper

Looking back at Skins list I'd add Jimmie Delahunty to it and I think that it was Shay Mackle rather than Eamonn who was a little younger. Happy Days!

Thanks, Denis, I've edited the original posting. Incidentally a memory surfaced recently of a smallish, dark-haired chap, who was a useful footballer. I have an idea his name was Tommy Conroy, or something similar. Can't recall whether he was in the Brothers with us or not....any thoughts?
