Is there anyone out there who attended or whose parents the Christian Brothers School, Ballinrobe, in the 1930´s and 1940´s? I am looking for old class photos and any information or stories with my dad, Michael Willis and /or his brothers Richard, John, Tom, Kevin, Peter and Gerry. They were born from 1923 to 1932. They had a sister Maureen, born in 1933, and their parents were Thomas and Hannah. They returned to Ballinrobe sometime after 1936 after their mother´s death; she´d been working as head postmistress near Emo, County Laois. The boys all attended Heath School for a short time while in Laois. They´ve all passed away and any information is most appreciated.
