Haymarket, on 16th January 1953 — returning to The Priory after Christmas?

Peter Browne (at The Priory 1947 - 51) writes:

Unfortunately I cannot place the chap next to left, but the other four
individuals were contemporaries of mine at The Priory and I certainly
remember Martin Boylan going on to Broome Hall with me later that year.

From left to right:
1. Frank Tortolano from Hill Park, Bannockburn.
2. Eugene MacBride
3. Vincent (Vinnie) Callaghan from Priest Hill, Glasgow.
4. Paul (I think) McGrath. Can't remember if he was
also a Glaswegian but I do remember that he was
our ace billiards player.

Peter Finn's record lists a Michael McGrath from Glasgow (PR: 1949 -53)


5. Martin (Ginger) Boylan from Hamilton.


Peter Finn comes to the rescue :

(L-R) : Frank Tortolano, Eugene McBride, Vinny Callaghan, Michael McGrath, Martin Boylan.

Does this help ?
