Love this photo,there is so much in it when you look.This was ,to me ,the generation before mine and I think I got the better deal.The photos on the wall must have been a constant reminder of whom the Big Boss was.

I agree with you Dave,a great photo which speaks volumes. I actually went to the Sacred Heart School, about 30 years later, having been born and bred around the corner in Springfield Rd. Hopefully, somebody, somewhere, will be able to put names to some of the faces. I probably knew some of them as mothers and fathers when I was growing up. DAVE, you're right. It was a roman catholic school and we CERTAINLY knew who the "Big Boss" was.
