Taken outside Harvey House. Bros Neenan, Kelly, and McDermott. circa 1962.
Have got this photo plus a couple of others of the same vintage.
If anyone out there should be interested I can dig them out and do some identifying.
Brian Kelly is alive and well. Be pleased to hear from anyone who survived the course!!
