Hello, all you auld yens! Only kidding! I too lived in Priesthill and proud of it. We were the Loves on Corsford Drive---just around the corner from Househillmuir Cres. I lived there from 64--72. I went to St. Roberts, as did my brothers John, Chic, Bernie and Jamie. We also went to Bellarmine. I couldn't believe the last time I was in Pollock and seen that Bellarmine was torn down. I just got back from Govan where I buried my dear brother Chic. To find this page is unbelievable. Especially finding fellow Priesthillians... God bless every one of you --- you have all certainly made my day reading your messages to each other. I noticed that I did not put down a location. I now live in Washington DC with my husband and two grown boys --- it will never be another Scotland, though...

I stayed at 51 Lunderston Drive in the 60s, next door to the Logams. Anyone know what happened to Alec Logan. Also a pal of mine called Kenny Gibson used to stay round there and Eric Mason. Anybody know what they're up to these days.

I went to St.Bernard's school and St.Robert's church and I hated Father Burns. Used to shout at us for being late to mass.

Anyone remember (or know) Matthew McPhee, used to stay on Pinmore Place, Nitshill? Me and him was best pals. No seen him since the 1970s.
