Gateway: the beginning

I am usually in the Gateway Club once a week for Bridge sessions and there are lots of Irish classes and other activities nightly.  Peter and Sinead Donaghy sometimes have gymnastic sessions there too.

All of this is of course peripheral to the Centre’s principal function of providing activities several times a week for its own clients – the special children and adults of our community.

One such, Raymond (what IS his surname?) efficiently and effectively manages and runs the Gateway on those nights that we are present. 

These photos show some of the clients and friends from more than thirty years ago – July 1978 to be precise. 

Is that John McSherry with the tie? 

Could that be our own Peter Cunningham with the facial hair?

Do I spot Mairaid and Patricia Haughey?

Who is the nun?

Can you help with the names?
