There was an old school in Mucknish...

There was an old school in Muckinish a place near Ballyvaughan. It is knocked down now. The ruins of it are there still.
It used to be a school in the weekends and a chapel on the Sundays. The fifteen nails where the stations used to be hung are to be seen there still. The holy water font is there also. They are there with ninty years.
The school master used to slap the scholars for talking Irish. He used to stay in every one of the pupils houses for a week. His name was Patrick O'Loughlen. The school is built for over one hundred years. It was only used as a chapel for the first few years. Then they started a school in it because the other schools were too far away from the children.
