Thank you to Eric Gold who wrote:

I agree with the names of Canon Turner and Father Gallagher on the back row of this photo.

I believe that the other two priests in the photo are:

-   CENTRE ROW, LEFT:

Father McNeil or McNeill.  He used to visit our house in East Arthur Place.

-   CENTRE ROW, RIGHT:

We pronounced the priest's name, Father McHugh or McKew.   The spelling may have been Father McHugh.

Thank you to Tony Ivanov who replied:

"My thanks to Eric.  The name, Father McNeil, has jogged my memory.

I'm wondering how I got the name McQueen, perhaps Eric might know if there was another priest with this name around this time"

Thank you to Monica Pudel (née Mahon) who replied:

"To the right of Canon Turner is John Joe Walsh
then Fr Gallacher, then Fr McNeil."

Also in the picture are James Patterson and Ralph Perilli.

I was at St Anne's and St Pat's between 1947 and 1949."

Monica added

"James Patterson is next to Fr McMeal.
At the other side, Ralf Perille is next to Fr McHugh."
