Help Needed with an Old Photo – resolved !!

Recently, I spent several hours looking through photos in the Millstreet Museum. I was thrilled when I found one that included my Dad. I was wondering if I could get some help from the Millstreet community in identifying the others in this picture. My Dad, Timothy Joseph Kelleher (b. 1933 in Liscreagh) is standing, fourth in from the far right. I know that Noel C. Duggan and Willie Neenan were in my Dad’s class but I think this picture includes younger guys also. My Dad was very proud of the fact that he stayed in school and did his Leaving Cert. Would love to find a picture of his Leaving Cert class, if it exists, but any and all info about this picture would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your help, Bridget.
