In the last month in the local Edinburgh Evening News there were articles about Ricky Demarco and his association with the Arts Festival since it started in 1947, celebrations for Tim Maguire celebrating completing 1000 marriage services as a humanist celebrant, and pictures of him presenting a cheque to SANDS charity. In another picture, the full council of Linlithgow were parading in full regalia in the town in 1969. This is of interest to us as in the picture is Fergie Byrne, our maths teacher(on extreme right). He was the Provost. Sadly, there was also a report on an abuse case in the High Court in Glasgow concerning St. Ninian’s school, Falkland, which was the other Christian Brothers school in Scotland. The articles have been sent to Maurice Dougan, to include them on the website.
We recently received a brochure for the John Duns Scotus Festival 2016 from Father John Robinson, whose father, Jack, was in charge of looking after the grounds and the fabric of the buildings for the school. The event takes place from Sat. Sept. 17 to Tues. Nov. 8 in Duns For further information, contact www.dunsscotus2016.com

John Barry reported that he met Aidan Bremner on John’s holiday in Portugal, and found him fit and well, and that he was just like at school.
Tom McEwan bumped into a few friends at the Festival, being a multitude of Bartholomews and Angelo Lannie. Tom is performing his last two gigs at the festival. He is at Orwell Terrace, near Haymarket at 10.00pm on Tuesday 16th, and Wednesday 17th August. You can find recordingsof the first two on Periscope - search for T.G. McEwan – and detailsfor the others below. No Dark Nights though.
Why not help an old troubadour sail gracefully into the sunset by visiting his shows.
