  1. Noel Buckley (back row on the right…..only face from nose up visible)
    Sean Gallen (from the Bush Bar) 1st on left of back row.

    John O’Sullivan from cloghboolabeg, now an AerLingus Pilot, is the boy in the front row with the big head of straight hear and wears the dark jumper with a funky zig-zag pattern across shoulders and upper arms only.

  2. Matt Bickerdyke (paragliding Acro Pilot supreme & Tree Surgeon) is the tall boy with dark hair in the right of the picture

  3. The two boys up front in jumpers are (L-R) Conor Galvin and Dennis Vaughan. Both classmates of mine from Boherbue. Directly behind them are 2 boys. one dark one fair, they are O’Keeffe brothers, also from Boherbue. First names escape me right now.

  4. That’s me (Derry Casey) front left age 9 and my brother Trevor age 8 with the jacket. Ned is our father Franks’ first cousin.
