A Chaoimhin, a chara,
Is iardhalta me de chuid Scoil Mhuire. Rinne me mo chuid A-levels i 1960.
In case you’re not fully at ease in Irish, I’ll continue in English.
You might like to add to the Hardinge Street 1910’s list of pupils: George Magee, chauffeur in Detroit (1892 – 1944). Michael Magee, leading trade-unionist in Ford’s, Detroit (1896 – 1954). Michael Magee was my maternal grandfather.
To the 1950 list of teachers you could add Sean Rice (Irish) and to the list of administrative staff Paul McDermot.
If you are interested, I could send you a photo of George Magee’s when they finished school.
I also have photos from the late 1950’s of Br. Begley, Br. Beausang and various pupils (including Peadar Mac Muiris who figures in your list of 1960 past pupils) who were members of Ogra Eireann. The pictures were taken during an Easter trip to Gaoth Dobhair (see attachment).
Beir bua is beannacht,
