Dalriada photos: Pupils (1955-ish)
This scanned image was supplied by Fiona Knight. She believes it was taken around 1955. Her mother, Margaret Rose McAuley (born 1938), is the only girl in the picture. Margaret lived in Ballymoney as a child then moved to Bushmills where she married, at age 17, James Beckett Stuart.
Jeffrey Small has identified most of the others thus:
Back row (L to R) Ronnie Templeton, James Brewster (brother of Allan), James (Skee?) McMaster, Willie Duffin, ?James Boyland?, ?Arnold Barkley?.
Front row - Brian Smyth, Margaret McAuley, Mr McGivern, John Todd, William Holmes (brother of Dan).
Willie Duffin provides the following alternative identifications:
Back row, 2nd from right, next to Willie - "Beefy" Wallace.
Front row - Willie confirms 2nd from right is John Todd from Ballymena but he thinks far right is Johnny O'Kane from the Loughguile area.
