Today the dog woke up bright and early and as it was a bank holiday here in Ireland we headed off for a long walk. We walked up to Cappagh School House which is located in Coolaney, Co. Sligo. The school was built in 1868 and cost £300.
I couldn’t find an awful lot of information about it on the internet but did find some on Michael Farry’s book Killoran which has quite a lot of info about Coolaney. It’s hard to believe that this one room had 144 children enrolled, although usually only around 44 turned up as school wasn’t compulsory.
