Comments: I was at Salesian College, Cowley from 1959 to 1966. In fact there were 6 Byrnes at Cowley at the same time for 1 year. 3 brothers from my family and another 3 Byrne brothers from another family. Also recently I discovered that some of my cousins (McSweeney's) went to Battersea or Chertsey. I enjoyed my time at Cowley and would like to meet up with some past pupils (in Oxford, if possible)to chat about the past. I only recently retired from working abroad for a long time and so missed the most recent reunions.
Admin reply: Dear Colm,

A new, two-part documentary that charts the evolution of state care for children whose parents could no longer cope. The early picture is bleak, Dickensian and heartbreaking – it took the death of Dennis O’Neill at the hands of his foster parents in 1945 to shock the government into action. Dennis’s brother, Terry, gives a horrifying first-hand account of the crime. "Some One To Love Us"

Comments: Dear Readers,
Our former National President, Patrick Morrissey, and his family have received the dreadful news that one on his grandchildren, Flynn, died in a car accident today. May I ask for your thoughts and kind prayers for the deceased, and for the families that must be in a true shock at this very sad time?
Flynn, aged 11, a much-loved grandchild and one of Dominic's sons, died in a motor accident near Manchester this morning . A Porsche hit his mother's car head-on on their way to school. She and another son in the car were taken to hospital and we await news on them, but they are not thought to have serious injuries.
