of course jacobite ,,,,,didnt realise that time had moved on so fast ,,,,actually the gates to which reference was being made ,were those on Rock square ,entering THE LAWN ,,there was a committee,of past pupils who set up a fund approx 1951 ,in order to make a lasting presentation to the nuns and the town ,in order to commemorate an anniversary ,probably 50th ,,also there was a statue unveiled at the same time ,beside the tunnel.,my god it seemed so beautiful to us ,at the time ,with this lovely halo with bulbs all around ,and floodlighting ,,,,looking at that sight in those days ,was like being in heaven ,and on the other [shool side] there was this lovely grotto with a fountain in front ,,could anyone coming from the dark ages in the heart of the countryside ever imagine anything so beautiful ,and condusive to prayer and devotion,,,
