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)
An inspirational and surprisingly entertaining (sic!) night was had by about 60 parents who arrived on Thursday last at St Brendan’s National School, Rathcoole to listen to a talk by John Lonergan and Caroline Crotty.
John, who was governor of Mountjoy Prison for 24 years, and Caroline, a psychology counselor for teens and adults, gave a refreshing and honest talk titled “Parenting – the challenges and the rewards.”
Both parents themselves, they gave sound advice on many challenges today’s parents face: social media related risks, drugs, peer pressure.
They also focused on simple and wonderful joys parenthood brings. After all you only need two measures to check your children against: health and happiness.
The views they shared were simple and yet so witty and true. They held their audience captivated for the whole time. Serious nods from the parents mixed with outbursts of laughter at real life anecdotes.
Tomorrow (Wednesday 3rd) is Grandparent’s Day. We invite
grandparents of all children to mass in the
Church at 10am. The mass is to celebrate the
wonderful contribution grandparents make to
the lives of their grandchildren. We invite
grandparents to join us after mass in
Presentation N.S. for a cup of tea/ coffee and
to visit the classrooms of your grandchildren.
