Back to School 1962 and 1974!

25 Aug 2016

With the 'back to school' time of year already upon us, we thought this would be a perfect time to share two great photos that were sent into us by our readers.

The wonderful picture above was sent in by Clontarf expat Mary O'Reilley who now lives in Waterford. The picture is of the Belgrove Girls School performing Tír na nÓg in the Metropolitan Hall Abbey Street at Cór Fhéile in about 1962.

Our second picture is of the Belgrove Junior Boys School Choir sent into us by Ronnie Duane which was published in an issue of the Evening Press from 1974.

Recognise anyone you know? If you remember your first school experience or if you are getting your kids ready for their first day of school, comment below and let us know!
