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.

Disowned & Disabled 9PM BBC4 tomorrow Tuesday.

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.

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?

Details below:

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.

Hi, i can't remember whether i've already posted on this! Old age creeping on? Anyway i was there until 1958 but remember certain parts as if it were yesterday, such were the characters.

I'm actually still working, currently in Abu Dhabi.

Love to hear from anyone who remembers me or anyone else for that matter.

Admin reply: Dear Jeremy,

Thanks for your message in our National Website Guestbook. When you say you were here. Which School were you at?

Trust you get some responses.

Best wishes, John Ward

Many happy memories of my time at Shrigley (1967-72). To anyone out there who are contemporaries, I hope life has been good to you. I can remember most of the names and only sad that we may not meet up in the future. As an aside, who can remember a certain lay brother (I will withhold his name out of respect) who was infamous for his trademark knuckle rap to the crown of the head? I can still recall one occasion when my knees buckled and my head hurt for days afterwards. Classy!

Admin reply: Dear Jim Taque,

Thanks for your message in our National Website Guestbook.

I hope you get some responses from your former School mates.

Best wishes,

John
