Hi there
Class of '74 graduate now living in New York. I just came across photo of me receiving class prize, 1st year, from Mr. Tully as Rector, Father Burns as Chaplain in old Mothrewell Town Hall. Rekindled many fond memories of my schooling at a great educational establishment. Ronnie Mathieson was Math Teacher, Mr White was English Teacher, Mr Lavelle for French, Mr. Friel for Gym, Mr Lunny for Latin. Blue blazer and the old blue&white badge "Meta Sou, Maria, Nikhsomen"

I remember you Phil McCaffrey. I was friends with your brother John. We both worked part time for McKeown's. When I was in the Royal HK Police there was a guy there from Coatbridge who was at school in your era. His name was Bob Toal. Unfortunately he did not last long after he retired and passed away a few years ago.

Anyone still around from 1940 - 45. I was in the ATC Squadron at school and played for all the football teams at each level. We won several trophy's but alas, no photographs. We were beaten one year in the semi final of the Scottish Schools Shield, at Lesser Hamden by St. Patricks, Dumbarton. I remember a few names but could probably expand that by intercommunication with any contemporary. I remember the old school with fondness but didn't appreciate it at the time !!!

I return to this site like a salmon returning to its spawning ground as the love/hate relationship with OLHS endures. Thus I recognise a few names from my servitude from 1954 to 1961. I see Dan Millar of Bellshill, the gravel-pit fisherman, Peter Dowds the blonde-haired Adonis with his quiff hanging over his eyes, Gerry Heaney and Gerry Monaghan, footballing members of the Rutherglen mafia that descended by steam-train each morning at Motherwell station, and laid-back Jim Harkins from East Kilbride who sat behind me in Mr Ablett's class where I couldn't remember the Lord's Prayer when leading the class in payers. Naturally, I got the belt.

I was at Our Lady's in the 50s. Remember most of the guys. Played in teams from junior to senior, so somebody might remember me. We won the Lanarkshire and the Anderson cup in 1955. Also played in the infamous shield final of 1957, against Holyrood. Both schools were banned from Scottish Schools football for refusing to play the replay at Blantyre Vics park. Therein lies a tale.
The team in that final was Bill Dornan, Owenie Oates, Phil Lynch, John Martin, Billy McNeill, John McConnaghie, Hugh McCabe, John Logan, John McLaughlin, Phil McCaffrey and Mick Carley

Would love to hear from anyone from that era

Must be getting old as all the names and faces from 71-76 and beginning to sneak into my sleeping and daydreaming moments.... Happy days , although not realised at the time...and some of the best teachers around , who knew how to draw a belt as they swaggered in their capes , like gunslingers with the belt tucked neatly over their shoulders ..trying to keep the cream of all boy higher education in line. Sadly one such teacher Mr Shaun Flafferty passed earlier this month.

Hi to everyone

Hello Keiran Quinn....I went through school with your father,Hugh, and we both played in the "Senior Shield in 1949;we won against St.Mungo's Academy on a replay.The replay was at Shawfield,home to Cylde Athletic,not Lesser Hampden,The following year we won against Whitehill Academy,and your uncle John played at outside left,You will find it strange that no photographs were taken on th 1949 occasion,but one was taken of the1950 team.Please convey my best wishes to Hugh and John.

Hi Dorothy Tollan (now Dee Carbray)! I just saw your post and that you wanted to get in touch. I would LOVE to catch up with you! Since I work in health services I tend to keep a low profile: I'm not on Twitter or Facebook and don't like to give out contact details on public forums; but you can always get hold of me at my office number 004769308880. I have lived in Norway since graduating from Glasgow Uni and of course my name has changed too! Hopefully catch up with you soon! Hugs from Theresa (Tolmie) McGrane
