Great school. Remember it well. Mr. McNally, Mr. O’ Hara, Brother Moroney, Mr. Devlin, Mr Brankin. We went camping in the Mourne mountains one year for summer school with Mr. Dempsey. Was hilarious, trying to sneak off at night for a smoke, tickling for trout, and rock climbing. Could write a book about our time there. (Hugh Rooney)
