My Class in secondary school (almost 30 years ago)

Jes Class Photo

I attended St Ignatius secondary school in Galway (more commonly known as the Jes). I finished up there in 1979 so I will be 30 years gone next year.

A few of us were discussing the possibility of organizing a class reunion of some sort. The first step in organizing this was to see if we could remember the names of everyone in the class. Luckily my father was able to locate this class photo which I think was taken around 2nd or 3rd year.

After a bit of head scratching and consulting with friends that I am still in contact with, I managed to match names with all of the faces in the picture.

Now comes the hard part of finding each of these guys after 30 years. I know I have changed quite a bit in the last 30 years, so I don't know if I would recognise my old class mates if I met them in the street.
