This may seem a strange request but I have been advised to make contact you by the Downpatrick library for assistance. I am trying to get some information about a book published by the SEELB in 1985. The author was a Roberta E McAuley and the book title is ‘INCH SCHOOL MEMOIR’. My late mother and some of her family, one of which died very recently are in one of the published photographs dated 1948 outside the school. I would like to obtain an original copy of the book and maybe with a bit of luck be able to get a copy of the class photograph. One of the contributors to the book among many others was a Geraldine Hegan c/o SEELB HQ if this helps. I would be obliged if you could deliver this email to the relevant department that deals with publications and with a little help and luck I might be able to get a copy of the photograph.

I will be indebted for any help I might receive, the request being more poignant after the recent death of Leslie Emmett and the death of my mother, Daphne Emmett some years ago.

I have enclosed the front cover and a page showing acknowledgements.

Thank you

Gordon Thompson
