    Hi Julie,
    where do you find these photos? Thank you so much for posting this picture. I don't come onto the site very often but seeing a photo like this makes it so worth while although very strange!- It's like someone has entered my brain. This picture is just....clear and familiar to me and a big part of the childhood I remember.
    Thanks again,
    Sally

    In photo description -incorrect date, should be early 1974, was apparently one of the last houses to be shifted before union embargo on removals. Maybe Val Pyers, (a memorable teacher), would also not be happy with the use of to and not in?

    The third on the right of the first standing row is my sister Jenni O'Connor and behind her and one to the left is my eldest sister Terri. I recognise some of the other faces but can't put a name to them. I'll show Jenni this photo - she has a memory like an elephant!

    Seated front row third from the left is my little sister, Karen O'Connor. I'd forgotten what a little cutie she was! And standing up back row second from the left is one of my lovely little brothers, John O'Connor. Wow, this makes me feel old!
