This isn't strictly St Patrick's but so many of us spent our High School Days at Holy Heart of Mary that I feel pretty certain that these pictures have a place on this blog. I hope you all agree. Anyway, Sr Imelda, who spent about forty years at St Patrick's, is in one of the photographs. Is that enough to make this a St Patrick's post? I think so!
The first picture is an old post card that I have had since Eve was a rib. The second, and my favourite, is one that has come into my possession from heaven knows where. Does anyone recognise anyone in it or know what the occasion was? There seems to be quite a lot of laughter over whatever Sr Nano & Sr Hildegarde have in their hands.

I would say this second picture was taken somewhere between 1960 and 1965. Does anyone know when?
The Sisters in the front row are Sr M Tarcisius, PBVM, Sr M Nano, PBVM, Sr M Hildegarde RSM, Sr M Imelda, PBVM, Sr M Thomasina, PBVM, Sr M Reginald, PBVM, Sr M Grace, PBVM and Sr Marie Antoinette, PBVM. In the next row, sitting behind the empty chair, is Sr M Ernestine, RSM.
I don't have any more names but these should stir some memories. Please let us know if you have any names to add or any information about what was taking place when this happy photo was taken.
