don't start me :roll: you will get another rant like the one I did over the demolishing of the old rectory beside the parish centre.

suffice to say a little forward thinking could have saved the building.

the excuse was that it was unsafe

no one was notified and one monday morning VERY early they bulldozed it

there are no plans to rebuild anything in it's place

yet another piece of warrenpoint history gone

I had many happy memories in that school and was really annoyed it was torn down. I remember once some of the girls came running out of the indoor toilets at the back of it saying that the virgin Mary had appeared in them, course i ran in to check while everyone was heading the other way. Power of suggestion :lol: it was a grand building and i admired it from a child, many ghost stories where shared there among children. I dont see why it was ripped down it should have been restored. But shall hold of on my rant also and think of the happier times.

remember being late for school also loads of times joining the back of the assembly and Sister Dolerosa got annoyed at this and sent me and Catherine Dinsmore down to the home to serve tea to the elderly for the morning only thing was we actually enjoyed that lol

These Liebherr cranes will probably be away before the end of the week,if you want a good view go to the Omeath side and turn to the left before the old Church of Ireland.
The large grey crane is a floating crane and will be used to dismantle these cranes which have been a part of our skyline for more than thirty years.

Yes, being dismantled as a I type. My place of work / office is directly behind the 2 cranes . The cranes will be taken away to Liverpool for scrap by the Mersey Mammoth which has been along side since Monday 25.02.

Harbour Lights, Great George's Street South....and Donnelly's house. Harbour Lights was once owned by Tommy Parkinson, & I think Bob Matthews, of the Wavecrest, lived in Donnellys.

Awful as it sounds..the space left behing after the demolition of "The Liverpool" is more attractive than that which was there. Good photos of Drumsesk btw.

In 1912 it was neither a boys or a girls school. Girls would have been taught in St Peters Street in 1912 where the panto hall is at the back of the former convent (INF)

I remember your mother living in Church Lane, did she live with Paddy Morgan or did she live next door, that would have been about 1941 or`42. we used to play in the lane and woud have been in and out of their house, Ryans lived in the corner house facing Post Office St., then McShanes, at the other end facing Church St.Fiver Carvill and his family lived. The memory I have of your mother was her curly blond hair, not much else..........it`s a long time ago ............................
