A confirmation class photograph taken at Castleisland Boy’s National School in 1971 and was given to me years ago by Dermot Horan.
Dermot, who is included in the photograph himself, even documented the names of the class members who were missing on the day. Those on a day off when the photograph was taken were: Denis Barry, Colm Moloney, Johnny Nolan, Timmy Murphy and Jackie McGaley.
