Ahh the curragh picture house .Had many a good night there ,all those cowboy and kung fu films ,,if i close my eyes i can see and smell the place.Remember flicking the cigarett buts up at the screen,and those filthy toilets. IF only i could spend one more minute there i would cherish it.

my name is frank dowling. i went there 1970 to 1974. i left the curragh to live in carlow. anyone remember david livingston, eddie browne, mark sparrow or willy walshe? or the boxing club with mousey connolly, bursting out the school door at 3 o clock to cross the road to the swimming pool, even though most of us couldnt swim. anyone remember a teacher called mr. boots? i think he was from kerry. would it be possible to organise a reunion? it would be great to meet everyone again.
Hi Peader I am afraid that there is only one Military Band in the whole Army now and it is not stationed in the Curragh. The current band is made up of the remnants of all the bands of the various Commands, now amalgamated into One, and headquartered in the Brugha, the home of the Old ASM. I was once a member of the same establishment in 1965 (Boys Service) and stayed until I was 17, and then joined the regulars. I made some very good friends in the School as we so fondly remembered it as. The reason for the amalgamation was due to the non- recruitment embargo, which I believe will soon be lifted in the case of Bandsmen. So with current wastage due to retirement the numbers dwindled and hence the reason also for there now being only one band. Regards and keep the Old Crotchets and Quavers flying. JKelly
