This class was one year below ours but although I'm getting older my "long-term" memory is still quite sharp. I can update some of the missing names that Anne Bretherton had question marks although one or two did stump me!!! Here goes:

Bottom row, next to Pauline Flynn is Josie Magnall, girl next to Joan Sharples is Elaine Pugh don't think that's Elaine on Row 4.
Row 3: Next to to Christine Golding is Pat Mills,girl between Christine Golding and Marie Calter is Christine Unsworth,
Row 4: Girl next to Paul Taylor is Anne Cunningham followed by Julia Burke.
Row 5: Girl next to Carol Darbyshire is Susan Green, I think it is Michael Crinigan next to John Cunningham and the lad at the end of the row is Stephen Parks.
Back Row: Next to Danny Connaughton is Peter Golding and next to him is Christopher Sullivan. I think the girld at the end of the row is Janet Eyre.

Girl next to Joan Sharples is Chris Sweeneys older sister,dont remember her name but she has lived in Abram all her life.It definately is Elaine Pugh on the 4th row.

Comments by anne bretherton, 13th October 2010  
Liz....your brother Bob was in my class at Holy Family and Cardinal Newman and i remember your brother Tom as well.

Comments by Kathleen Horrocks (Walsh), 26th October 2010  
Girl who I thought was Elaine Pugh is Pauline Sweeney.

I keep in touch with Sheilagh Moor she's in Colwyn Bay so we would need to plan this to give people notice to get there. Great picture,remember black and white photo's (i don't feel that old)

Yes Helen Moore is on the Top row & that's little old me on the 4th row Sheelagh Moore - I do live in Old Colwyn so if you are organising a get together give me a bit of notice I can then get over. John the eldest lives in Aspull, Helen and Rob both still live down Lee Lane Anthony lives in Bickershaw & Tom has moved to Canada.
Going to go & find my old 1st communion photo and get it on scanned on - watch this space !!!!

Comments by Jackie Best, 14th August 2012  
Yes, that's me (Jacqueline Greenwood) on the back row.
On the 5th row - I beleive that the girl on the end next to Carol Darbyshire is Kathleen McGarry. Peter Crinigan (not Michael) is the boy next to John Cunningham.

Great photo - thank you for posting it.
