......from one of those humungous group photos, this one taken in the school year 1959/60. There are lots of local girls here for those old enough to remember! I've had to divide it into sections. These are the first two:

Sorry about the overlap, it's the only way I could scan & get them all in!

B&B - I can make out a few. Maura Doyle, Kay Hanna, Geraldine Fitzpatrick.
I know a couple of other faces but I can't name them.
You are in the first picture.

OMG,this photo has just reminded me of how much I hated that uniform.It was so heavy and bulky.I think I was in fourth year when the new style uniform came in but I never had one.I wore the same pinafore for the 5 years I was at the school so can you imagine what it must have looked like when I was in 1st year :shocked:
Great photos B&B..........and everyone with their nine buttons in place,three sets of three :thumbs:

Yes joanne, at the time I hated the uniform too! :-( Maggie Kinney made mine & she & mum insisted on a huge hem "to allow for growing" which added to the bulk of the material. The only time it was comfortable was when it became thin & shiny with wear & then of course it was time to start all over again with a new one! I think I only had 2 uniforms made the whole time I was there - I have a vague memory of a patch in my final year!
I must say though, looking back at these pics from an adult perspective the uniform looks really smart, much nicer than the long tartan skirts of today.....even the tunics which came after ours, as worn by my daughters, were better than the skirts!
Were you around for the "summer" uniform of gingham dresses? I missed those.

Yes B&B,I was around for the summer uniform and loved it.I would have worn it all the year round if it had been allowed.Maggie Kinney made my uniform too and it had a massive hem which was never let down as the edge of the hem was too worn.I tore my uniform to shreds the day I finished my final exam...............it wasn't hard to do as it was about to disintegrate anyway :rotfl:

Spot on joanne, & as usual I wasn't looking directly at the camera & was also contravening uniform policy by wearing an open-necked blouse! Many's the time I was hauled in front of Sr de Sales for that sort of thing.....I'm surprised I was even allowed in the photograph :P

B&B - I know a lot more in the 3rd picture. I see you now and Bernadette
wondered where she was. I didn't go to Our Lady's but I did like the
uniform. I think the long plaid skirt today is a little bit much.

In small ways only, Liz! :P I tried to stay "under the radar" as much as possible, but in those days it didn't take much to be branded as a rebel....going downtown for lunch, not wearing your blazer, loitering in the cloakroom - my goodness I was a real criminal! :D

No Brenda, our Sr de Sales was a Mercy nun, a Durkin from Warrenpoint, & she spent a lifetime at Our Lady's - never taught in my day, except for Irish, as she was close to retirement at that time.

B&B, I am going crosseyed here! I think I have spotted a few. Is that Kay Barry in last pic 2nd row from front? Thought I saw Betty Connolly in one before last. Is Kathleen McAlinden there somewhere? And Sally Owens? Squinting is tough on these old eyes. :[

Yes SLG, all of the above are there, & lots more - surprised you didn't mention the girl sitting next to Kay Barry? Sorry about the damage to your eyesight :-c I was thinking of chopping the photos up to make them easier to identify, but that would mean a lot of pics.....what do you think? I can't believe that this is the only photo I have of Kathleen McAlinden , & not a very good one either! If you have any I'd love to have them.

It would be a lot of work! Maybe some, please. :-
Beside Kay, Nuala Grant?

I see Mary Gregory, yourself, Ann Doyle and Bernie Mackrell as already mentioned. I would have to really study it and think of all the point ones of that era.

I remember the Doyles, Colette Sheehan, she lived beside the Doyles or close. Kay Hanna and Nuala Barry, Maura Magill going to our Ladys. They were big girls, I would be out playing on the street and they would come up Mary Street on their way home from school.

Cropped images - not great quality but recognizable

5 (or maybe 6!) Point girls & 1 whose father was a Point man from a very well-known family
Image


4 Point girls, 1 honorary Point girl & 2 Rostrevor girls
Image


3 Point girls
Image


2 Point girls
Image


2 Point girls & one who spent more time in the Point with her Charlotte St family than in her home town!
Image


2 more Point ones!
Image


1Rostrevor & 1 Point
Image


1 Point girl & 1 very good friend of Northbrook!
Image


1 Point, 1 honorary Point & 2 Rostrevor girls

Image


and finally, 2 Point girls
Image

I'm sure I've missed out some, especially the younger ones. All the names already mentioned are correct!

Carol Magennis. Nor sure if Deirdre Gallagher RIP is there. She always had two long very smart plaits.
