Howyez,

For some strange reason I got it into my head that I'd like to produce and publish on YouTube a slideshow of old, new and in between Photos of Finglas. Yes I know there are a number of slideshows out there already but I want to make this one the biggest and the best hopefully. A lot of the slideshow already available show a mixture of the same photos and while mine will feature a lot of the same photos I call on all members to submit any photos they may have taken around the Finglas area to post them on here and permit me to use them in this project. Obviously I would like the photos to be as large as possible (within the guidelines of this website) - It doesn't matter about the quality of the photos ... I will use my very limited Photoshop skills to clean them up as best I can before publishing them.

C'mon everyone get behind this little tribute to the Finglas we all know and love. I'm just looking for general photos - landmarks, streets, houses etc to show the difference in Finglas over the years. If anyone feels uncomfortable posting photos directly to here they can forward them to me directly to my email address - tbruen@optusnet.com.au

Thanks to all in advance.

Thanks Bigby - That link still works - I have a lot of the photos on there already but there are some I haven't got. I don't want to infringe on anyone's copyright so I'm seeking permission to use photos but I don't always know who owns the copyright. I have downloaded a few photos and cleaned them up a bit using my limited Photoshop skills. See samples attached. Love for others to post photos here and allow me to use them.

Great one of the De-La Salle schoolboys.
I don't suppose there are any names, or a year?

I believe mid sixties, I would love to research that school , it had a great history under the brothers , no so sure what direction it is taking now, I believe it has been expanded into another concrete bunker that modern architecture gives us these days,

Correction...It had a terrible history under the brothers. Well I did anyway.
Especially brother Frederick.

I witnessed a few unsavoury things at that school,

thankfully I could stand up to those certain individuals , The feeling of hoplessness in those days , there was no one to confide in. We had a certain arts teacher who would try to molest students, he knew who was a softy and would hone in.I look back now and wish I had done something to report it. We always stayed in groups , safety in numbers .
But there were some great teachers there also.

I remember one winter we had a slide in the school yard. Brother Frederick had a go, fell over and broke the school bell he was holding.
Should have been his neck.
