Inside the old Cloghoula National School

Cork-based archaeologist Enda O’Flahety documents what remains of the desolate buildings in a photography project aimed at capturing the long decline of rural Ireland.

O’Flaherty began the project last year after coming upon an abandoned schoolhouse during a work field trip and realising that few modern visual records of such buildings exist.

Recently he featured the old Cloghoula National School. There is a good description of the architectural features of the school, as well as a number of photos. The article can be seen here (or just click on the photo below)

Neily Lehane

Whenever the Slanan Rovers Gaelic Football Club lined out to play
Their founder member Neily Lehane from them never far away
Always on the sideline cheering them on
Back there in Duhallow in Seasons long gone

One of Duhallow’s great characters of him one can say
I often do wonder where he might be today?
Neily Lehane one who was well liked and well known
He was one of those blessed with a charm of his own

Dan Gould

I remember Dan Gould as an ageing man
He was then in the twilight of his lifetime span
He lived near Millstreet Town up the Cloghoula way
The passing of time had left him looking gray

He was a great road bowler in his life’s prime
One of the best in Cork and Ireland going way back in time
Till the biological clock did become his foe
He lived his last day many Seasons ago
