Abbey Primary 5 : 1968

My name is Mike Cunniff and I’d really like your help!



That’s me on the right of the front row – with the long red socks.

Behind me in the centre of the middle row – wearing a goalkeeper’s jersey – is Danny Fitzpatrick, son of Betty who used to have the newspaper shop on North Street.

But I know no other names – not even that of the teacher.

Can you help me?
