down south, There may be a wee mistake re. one the pupils name's .. 'Michael Gallagher' I believe is correctly named as an Individual Sports Champion, but in the photo provided (A&S Herald?) his name appears as 'Alex Gallacher' ?

Thanks for the confirmation that Michael Gallagher is the correct name, Kittywake. Think we have another faulty caption here; Elizabeth Tumilty must be the correct spelling, since she's appeared as such in previous years.

The prizelist, such as it is, for St Peter's Primary in 1972:

Two years - Catherine Coby, Anne Marie Smallridge, Hilda Cotter. Brigid Thompson, Roger Smyth, Michael Donohue, David Shaw.

One year - Dorothy Campbell, Catherine McColgan, Guilia Moroni, Theresa Petrie, Josephine Sweeney, Catherine McBreen, James Donohue, John Shaw, Alec Ferguson, Pietro Farro, Stephen Moran, Patrick McCaul, Karen Fitzpatrick, Hugh Ward, Patrick Sweeney, Pauline McFadyen, Anthony Clarke, Michael McGowan, Carron Montgomery, Martin Hamilton, John Trainer.
