Our School

History

St Kieran's NS

Broughal school was founded in 1812 by John Fitzsimons for the benefit and education of his tenants and children. This was so that the children would not have to go to the Protestant school in Kilcormac. . The school was built of stone and thatch on the land donated by Mr Fitzsimons of Castlewood. William Walsh, the first teacher, had begun his career as a hedge school master. He taught for 32 years in Broughal school. and retired to Kilcormac where he died in 1873. He was succeeded by his daughter Mrs Egan whose inspector noted that she taught in her bare feet.

Our Visitor

Jimmy Horan came to our school one day and told us about the very old school. He said that the school was thatched and the windows were up very high so that the pupils couldnt be distracted from what was happening outside. There was a fireplace behind the teachers desk, Jimmy said and the pupils had to bring in some turf to keep the fire going.

History of Our School

Broughall school was built in 1951. There were two classrooms in it and they had stoves for heating. They burned turf in the stoves. The teacher was Ms McGovern and there were 35 pupils in it. There was an open shed outside the school and the pupils ate their lunch there.
