Post subject:  INF Band in the 50's

Image

In the first pix is the INF band, sometime in the late 50's going to Newcastle. The story I was told the bus broke down going up over Reed Hall, so they formed up and marched into Hilltown. The late Ted McNeill is leading, and the four drummers are Hughie MaGill, Arthur O'Loughlin, Christie Reid (RIP) and Derek McKinley (RIP). Terry McAnulty (RIP), Billy MCkinley, Eunan Crawford and a young Mickey MaGill, in short trousers are other members of the band.

Image

In the second pix taken in Dublin in August 1959 are the INF parading on the day Down played their first All-Ireland semi-final against Galway. Unfortunately they were beaten that day, but returned the following two years to win sucessive All-Ireland titles.
Ted McNeill is again leading the locals, a young Sean Daly, Dominic Bennett ???, Jimmy 'Rope' Burns, Derek McKinley, Bob 'Scudsey' Heaton, Peter Kelly, Billy McKinley, Charles McLoughlin and Don MaGill, the late Mary McKinley is walking alongside.

At the back of that row isn't that Big Jack Caldwell, who was a ringer for Jake La Motta,The Raging Bull?
Big Jack came from The Ballymaconaghy Road, but emmigrated to the States and lived in Hoboken or The Bronx. One year Jack was home on holidays, and he told his old nieghbour, The 'Balladoon' MacAnulty, that after being reared on The Ballymaconaghy Road, surviving in Hoboken and The Bronx was 'a piece of pie.'
Living amidst The MacAnulty's, the Caldwells, The Connolly's, The Grants, The Collins and the famous Owen Farnon would toughen any one. They would eat you with out salt, Doobie Brother's
father would testify to that.
His son Jack Junior used to come home every year, and participate in The Gunnaway Swim. He became a croupier in a London Casino, I think? He had another son who lived locally young Gerry. Is he still about?

Dukestreet, I have been told by one of the bandsmen in the top picture that this pic was taken at Ballyholland, the band leading Foresters to an INF rally there, & not into Hilltown.

I don't doubt it, I was told it was Hilltown, by a person who was not sure.

Going back to the early 70's, the band played at one of the All Ireland semi-finals, it may have been Tyrone v Kerry ??
As young boy's in the GAA club we would have our annual trip to watch the semi-final and stop off at Skerries on the way home.
The craic on the bus was first class, I always remember Emmett McGivern (RIP) telling us we had to be very quiet passing the cop shop and of course that was our signal to make as much noise as possible and get the trip off to a rousing start, the songs lasted all day, fantastic !
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows how to get a copy of the match and hopefully the band marching around Croker.
My Da and two uncles were part of the band and it would be a great treasure to add to any 'Point man's collection.
I was on the official GAA site but I cannot remember the year, they do have a few DVD's on the site of semi-finals and of course finals.
I also remember Paul Hourican as a member of the band wearing a wee Noddy hat. There he was tapping the triangle on occasion, this of course led to much cracking of ribs and collapsing with laughter, was Paul triangle tapping at this match or did that come later ??
Thanks for posting these pic's, really interesting looking at a different generation growing up together in the band.

it wasnt a noddy hat it was based on an artaine boys band hat and yes a I did play at croke park I got slagged by some guy that lived in 79 clermont gardens cant recall his name i just remembered i took a fly out of his eye and saved it using my swiss army knife.My grandfather was in croke park on the day of the massacre his freind had been killed and as he sat watching me on tv,he cried he was proud of me and i think he thought it was ironic that his daughter would marry a fine warrenpoint man and years after the murders at croke park his grandson would be marching around croke park,albeit dinging his triangle who. cares it made an old man proud.Sadly he died a few years later.i would wish to express my heartfelt thankx to murphy for his kind use of his facilities and his computer suite.

Well that must be Paul Hourican, and I can confirm without any doubt that Paul dinged his triangle and dinged it well at that semi-final in Croke Park..............Cork v Tyrone,,,,,was it 1967?...............anyhow the records will tell us the year,I`m not exactly sure.................................................................................................................

I would love to see that film of the band playing at Croke Park. My dad often talks of it. Or did the band play there more than once? I was proud to see dad marching at any time in his band uniform.... :clapping: :dance3:

re ADIE's query about Gunner Mc Ateer and "who fired the last shot"

When growing up in the 'point in the fifties, one way to get a great
chase was to shout after Gunner, "who fired the last shot, Gunner Mc Ateer".
He would then shout and chase after you...it was harmless fun. As I understood
it, he had been in the first world war and allegedly had insisted when he
returned home that he had fired the last shot of the war, a fact? that he
spent the rest of his life being teased about.
Another great chase could be had by opening the door of Charlie Mc Greevy's
cobblers shop and shouting "Charlie Charlie chuck chuck chuck" and then getting
away fast as Charlie would come charging out and give chase across the Square.
All seems so simple and innocent now at this remove.

..... and the exact same pranks were still being played well into the 70's :shocked: ..... to think how many times Charlie Mcgreevys shop was invaded by wee brats ( like myself) and "Charlie Charlie chuck chuck chuck" shouted at him .... I guess we weren't very original :D

Gunner wasn`t that old , born 1929 and believe or not only 62 when he died in 1991, Joanne may be able to throw some light on the nickname, I think Christy knew the origins of the story .............................................

Another nice photo of the band.
I wonder was it taken after '64,
because Don isn't in it.
Some names:-
Mr. McAleenan, Dickie McGuigan, Harry Heatley,
Eunan Crawford, Mr. Kelly and Mr. Rooney,
Marty and Michael Hourican.
