Sometime around 1970 the little 2 classroom schools were all
closed down and a new school built in Glenfarne village.
BL students went there to deliver an RE lesson each week, on
Wednesday mornings, then on to the bright lights of Sligo or Enniskillen!

. . . .In the Maurice's photo (above) you will find the names of children and one of teachers. I counted over twenty five, perhaps more.

The main people who helped identify the names were Mary Brady-Timoney, her sisters Kathleen Brady- Keaney and Bridget Brady - Fitzpatrick.
Although these ladies did not live near Brockagh School, one of their cousins is in the photograph — Ann Brady ( who died as a young mother)

Other people who helped identify people in the photo are Ben McHugh and Clancy family circle both of whom are from Brockagh Glenfarne Co Leitrim.

(April 2011):
It was Mrs McCormack who gave me a valuable lesson, thanks to Joe McHugh, down there in the front row. One week after Easter we had John's story of the breakfast by the lake after the miraculous catch of fish, and Peter's final declaration of faith; I think the lesson went well. The children drew some remarkable pictures, but Mrs McCormack drew my attention to Joe's in particular: come here now, Joe, what's this in the corner? - It's Saint Peter's lorry, Miss, come to carry away the fish. I'd missed the lorry completely; I'd not interpreted the shapes he'd drawn in 20th Century terms.

What she knew, but I did not, was that Joe's family had recently acquired a lorry which was Joe's pride and joy, so of course St Peter would have had his lorry ready to take the fish to market. The story made sense to Joe, and had always made more sense to me as a consequence; thank you Joe, wherever you are.

This looks familiar. Could it be the main dormitory at The Priory ?
Fr Wiseman was a student at The Priory 1936-38, so it might be one of 'the huts'.

There wasn't any heating in the main dorms as far as I remember !

This looks like Fr Wiseman (left) working with a colleague.

This is surely the most impracticable garb for heavy manual work ?
