Time brought me many another friend
That loved me longer.
New love was kind, but in the end
Old love was stronger.
Years come and go. No New Year yet
Hath slain December.
And all that should have cried, “Forget!”
Valuable record of Listowel’s forefathers

It shows the boys of 6th class in Scoil Realt na Maidine in 1930/31
There were hand written names with the photo but they were much faded over time. This was the best that could be made of them. Apologies for any errors or omissions.

Before McDonalds there were Wimpy Bars. They served no alcohol as far as I remember, just pocket -friendly fast food. This is the Tralee branch of the franchise. Photo from Kennelly Archive.
