School News

For younger readers,we have just been informed of the death of the last caretaker at the school. Mr Peter Gilroy was knocked down and killed on Slateford Road, Edinburgh. His wife, Mrs L . Gilroy died last month.

In the death notices of the local papers this month were the announcements of the deaths of Stephen Arcari’s mother, and Owen Fee’s father. Condolences are offered to the families of all mentioned.

Latest e-mails obtained— Jackie Broadley, who lives in Surrey, and John Macari.

Stephen Arcari lives in Aberdeen. Ian Davitt lives in Stowmarket, Suffolk. Philip Bartholomew lives in Cupar, Fife.

To prove that the Editor is not infallible, an erratum is published. John Shaw lives in Preston. His brother, David , lives in Beauly.

We hear that DavidWalls , John McQueston and Willie Wattie are arranging a reunion. Not only were they FPs at Scotus, but they were also at The Abbey School, Fort Augustus.

The editor met Tom Flaherty recently at Gullane Golf Course. He was looking in rude health and definitely not his age. It was good to see him again. I hope others will have similar experiences with fellow FPs.

Just heard, Bert D’Agostino is taking over the lease of The Cramond Brig, which is at the end of the A90 dual carriageway, where the road meets the Edinburgh boundary. Judging by some of Bert’s previous ventures, like Umberto’s and The Bonnington ( Topo Gigi’s ), it must be worth a visit. The editor’s three sons are regulars at the Brig.
