Long ago there were Hedge school-master's as they were then called; they used to teach in a barn or out house the way they were paid was one penny per week from each scholar, and in some cases the Land-Lords used to helf to pay, there was one of those sclools in Carrickrobin near Dundalk and the teacher's name was Mullholand there would be over one hundred in the school, there were no desks or seats. They had seats made of straw, they wrote on slates with a frame of wood round them they used to write on slates on their knees, and that was in the year 1860.
