Re: St Oswald's School-1940-1950

Hi Tony, If you started school in '48, then you would only be 7 and I was leaving school. I loved St Oswald's - except for Mr Bruynseels - and cried the day I had to leave school! Did you? Steph.

My Husband went to St Oswalds and left in 1946. Mr Herbert Marra was headmaster then, and the other male teacher was Mr Lawrence ( Gussy) Ireland, who taught Standard seven, and who later, was appointed head of Sacred Heart school. You will remember then, the school garden in Richmond Rd, which was run by Gussy, and the mothers used to come after school on a Friday afternoon to buy the produce. Three of the girls in my husbands class were Margaret Smith, Maureen Barrett and June Gardiner. Did you know any of those?. You may have know my husbands younger sister Margaret Mooney.

The Smith family lived on Whalley Rd, Accrington side of the Bridge. He seems to think George was the eldest, a very good footballer, then Billy, Margaret, a good netball player, Kathleen and Tony. Their Mother was a terrific St Oswalds supporter and was there at every event, football, netball, swimming, you name it, you could hear her above anyone else cheering the the school on.

He would not say she was slim, Cashman, but was very athletic and fit. Most of the Smiths were. She is the same age as my husband and would be 81 this year.

No, he remembers members of the Cooney family going to St Oswalds. His classmate friend Derek Kennedy,lived in Ranger St, and he thinks the Cooneys lived around the corner in Canning St. But it is nearly 70years since he left St Oswalds, and his memory is going a bit thin.
