School Photograph of 1950s

As promised on 15th July 2010 we now feature that very special c.1954 school photograph kindly provided by Joe Hickey (Killarney & Millstreet) and identified by Joe, Jerry Lehane and Tommy Burke – all of whom appear in the picture. The location is Millstreet Boys’ National School on Clara Road and the teacher is Mr. William (Bill) O’Keeffe. It’s likely that there are two classes included – possibly, 3rd and 4th Class. We are hoping that someone may identify the one person we have been unable to identify.  (Seán Radley for )

  1. Would be great if you lads could put up a new photo from different years / era every few weeks – Thanks for all the good work on the site

    1. hi conor, would love to put up such photos, but we can on’y put up what becomes available to us 🙁 … so if people would send them in any shape or form we would be delighted.

  2. Hi Millstreet,
    I am looking for any information on my great grandfather John T. Egan (born 1807). He migrated to London, England and married Elizabeth C. (Egan) who was 34 years younger than he. She was from Southwark, London, England. If any one has any information or can suggest places in or around Millstreet to look, I am coming over to County Cork in September to research. Many thanks, Glenn Egan
