  1. Are you sure about John O’Shea to the right of Gerry? I was rubbish at football but they did have a policy of letting you play for the school if the opposition was weak enough and I thought it was my scowling face peeping out there.

  2. My name is John Paul Foran. I am in Gerry ‘s
    Picture of the junior football team. I am
    The tallest boy nearest the camera .
    My two Easter ‘s spent at Mifriend were the trip to London (Zulu the movie ).The second Easter was Tenby South Wales. If anyone
    remembers the ice cream parlour owned by an
    Italian gentleman of course. Do you remember
    the picture he gave to the young seminarians
    on our last day of holiday. Of course Fritz claimed it was given to just him.
