I,m a Priesty aswell I lived at number 4 second close on the right in the top right house with my granny and all my aunts and uncles. My best friend was Janey McGrath. And in the next close was Linda Mccaully. I was there from 1956 ( born in the gas fire room ) till 1970. Saddest day of my life leaving Priesthill. I have a photo of me with my granny on the verandah when i was 3 I went back a lot of years later and stood in the same spot with me holding my granddaughter the two photos are eary to say the least.

oops should have read 4 Ravencraig drive sorry

Hi lived in Priesthill Road No 9 just down from Bus Terminus, stayed in the same close as Chris and Andy Keeting, just visited the old place, not what it used to be, but thats progress, I hate progress. went to St Roberts then on to Bellarmine, anyone remember the pitches next to the shool,and doing crosscountry there, used to hide behind big tree.

The cross-country was a good laugh. Maybe because I enjoyed it. I certainly never saw big Harry Morgan attempting to come out looking for us, although his voice could carry all the way to Carnwardic! lol The cross-country team were very successful, many of them representing Glasgow Schools and big John Murphy (science) would sign them up for the Bellahouston Harriers.

I think it was Willie Nesbitt (not Davy)who was with Robert on that tragic night. It is something I will never forget, the whole of Priesthill & Craigbank school was in shock. They were at the railway signal beside the bridge going over the railway and Robert (Who was a real thrill seeker) made a swing by tying a rope from the top of the signal. He was swinging on the rope with his chin resting on the loop which he had made in the rope. A friend of mine George Adams, whose Dad was a train driver heard from a driver who saw him on top of the signal, and not moving, so it is obvious that he got caught in the loop but somehow managed to climb on top of the signal before he lost the fight for his life. It is very painful for me to write this because I have never told this story and memories have came back to me. There was another boy called Tommy Reilly about a year later who had the same kind of accident in Priesthill whilst making a swing on a tree.

My grandfather was the "janny" at Burnbrae primary in the 60's and 70's. I have happy memories of visiting him and Priesthill as a kid. Anyone remember him?

Stu, I don't remember your grandfather but I recall that the Jannies house was attached to the school main building. If I am correct, it was an upstair flat at over-looking the fields.
