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,
Thank you for your message in our National Guestbook. I do hope you make some contacts with former friends. Best wishes,John

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"
