Chesnut leafs on the mall. Memories of school kids searching for conker for "conking" or putting in the ashes of the open fires in the barrack classrooms (Bros. Damien and Augustus). One specisl, golden,sunny afternoon. A problem developing between groups going home along the barracks avenue leading to Rock Square.
A free for all on the Mall which was missed by the lads who went home by the Barrack Bridge. Strong representation from Spencer Street, McHale Road & beyond: Cotter, Corcoran, Creshams, Kilcourses, Feeney, Halligan, Neary, Fair, Kilroy, Hegarty, Heneghan, Courell and Roach; from the Mall and Ellison Street: Murphy and Gough:
