The lady on the right looks like Miss Lythgoe a teacher in the Girls’ School. But she was a ‘Spinster of the Parish’ I don’t know if that mattered with it being the UCM ( Union of Catholic Mothers.)

Father Flynn was at St Patricks from 1959 to 1968.

Father Flynn was the Priest at our Wedding in 1961.

I always thought Fr Flynn was handsome.
I only remember him in the sixties.
