Wow – not sure if I’ve seen this pic before, Mr Coleman is very recognisable, although in my days he was much thinner on top!

Were the 2 Mr O’Shea’s there during your time, they weren’t related – Mr J. O’Shea was the elder, an Irishman who taught English! He could, at times, be a little grumpy and we lads used to wind him up into a fury.

The other was Mr M. O’Shea, known to generations of Joey’s boys as ‘The Weed’, he taught maths and occasionally took us for football. He could push, kick and shove anyone but God forbid any boy who kicked him back – I did!

Both the O’Sheas were characters and really good teachers, never to be forgotten.
