Nice to see big sister Kathleen 'in the frame'. She had a lovely voice and I remember her singing solo in the little Church on the Burren Road. I think it is still there? Aveen Kinney, Margaret Sterrit and Margaret Grogan are also instantly recognisable.

I have stated in a previous message, and I'll repeat it again....the 'Point is a better place for the class and culture that Mrs Trodden and Aveen Tohill have brought to our town and we are all deeply indebted for their tireless efforts over the years.

And getting this thread back on track........................................

I attended a meeting in Warrenpoint Town Hall this evening with Fawn, and up in the Boardroom was a beautiful painting of Mrs Trodden and the address that was presented to her some time ago.

It was quite lovely to see and perhaps we could have the wording of the address added to this thread on the site for all to read??

I was also honoured by being a member of her classes as a youngster and she was a truly wonderful teacher with a great gift.



(There was also a wonderful picture of Mrs Rene Cooper.) (For Stuart's attention)

I too was a member of Mrs Trodden's Class as was my good friend Bernie Smyth, but after hitting the piano keys once too often & knocking everybody out of tune we were dismissed. ~x( :keyboard:

I used to be a member of the Dun Eimear choirs also. Mrs Trodden as you say, had a wonderful gift and a wonderful way of imparting it. I can still picture the expression of joy on her face, when 'her girls' did her proud at a feis or other event. Lovely memories. :singer:

Mrs. Trodden also had Boys' choir and I was lucky enough to have been in one. She was a dignified and patient lady as well as being a great teacher.

I wonder if that was the portrait which used to hang in her sitting room? It was painted when she was quite young & she was very proud of it, & of the address. Last time I saw it was at her wake where it was much admired.
