Peter Browne writes:

"The late Michael 'Ebby' Bolan, who was a contemporary of mine at The Priory
and at Broome Hall, was both a gifted artist - particularly in pen and ink - and
a great modeller in clay. On several occasions he persuaded me to help him
dig clay from the bottom bank of the lower football field. Unfortunately, the clay
was only 'diggable' when it was raining. Ebby also became the school barber,
taking over, if my memory is correct, from Brother Modeste."
