In early Sept 2015 the Shrigley Old Boys Association was revived after its closure in 2011.
Thanks to Bernard O'Neill and Patrick O'Neill for all their work and for the support of the die-hards who turned up for another weekend of nostalgia.
We have decided to relaunch the website, frozen since 2011, and this "blog" is our start; it will be integrated in to the original site in the coming weeks...or months!
There was great variety starting with a piano contribution by Kevin Dean of a melody of songs through the decades where we recalled the various Rectors over the years. Ken Greaney shared some of his jokes, Michael McManus played his guitar, Keith Dransfield read humorous poetry, the Savio Volunteers sang a song in three different languages,
Gregg Bell played some singalong favourites and Joe Lomax sang some classical songs accompanied on the piano, Marie Kay who also played some fantastic music on her own. Bernard O’Neill paid a poetic tribute to Fr. Bernard and finally Gerry Wright entertained us for 20 minutes with his rock and roll song repertoire and his guitar. Fr. Tony then gave the “Good Night” encouraging us to hold onto our memories and expressed his appreciation for the high standard of entertainment provided.
