Yeah mate. Mc Fadden. 3 drags. To this day me heart still goes out to his Son Ronan. Wonder whatever happened to him?
Good to hear from you and hope all's well. :D

I looked in here to see if I could find out what went on at the Tech but no great details. We used to hang around the Library at strategic times to see who we could see. Was it only lads who went in the early 60's? We would see them coming out with bits of woodwork and metalwork.

I was there from 1971 till 1975, did my group cert and left. It was a boys tech at the time when I was there, but there were classes for older girls doing secretarial courses or sewing courses. :D

The fellows we used to be watching were Rockers of course, Mahonys, Kanes, Longs Jordans,McGuirks, Ryans. They all seemed to be having a much better time than us mostly smoking outside and combing their hair throwing shapes!

Nah, just gangs of fine looking fellas. Did I revive this topic the other day.???
When I went to work fado fado there was an old fella who was teed off with the chattering young wans there were a few of us from Blackrock. He stood up in the office and announced that "all the women from Blackrock were vaccinated with a gramaphone needle" and have been yakking since.
He can't have been right! :o
