"-   TOP ROW:
Jack Conway.

Maureen Waters (next to Charlie Burns), Alan Cooney and Frank Kellagher

Grace McCann,  Vera Flynn, Ruth Meechan, Iris Gordon, and the girl at the end is Agnes Martin.

I thought the girl 3rd from right in this row was Josephine Jardine but I may have it wrong. I think the rest are correct.

The names given by Maureen Robertson here don't match very well with those given by Peter Nolan when he sent the photo to me. 

I'm not familiar with St Ignatius School, so I cannot comment further.

Perhaps another member of that class might see this page and email further comments to me.
