desire that the master of the said school for the time being shall have permission to cut and draw turf from Knopogue on the said estate for the use of the said school but not for any other purpose."
The annual income corresponding to the annual £40 charge in the will of 1811 is paid to the Bishop and forwarded to the Parish Priest of Millstreet to be distributed as follows :- % to the Presentation Convent, 1/4 to the Boys' School. It is difficult to know how and when this latter distribution arrangement was legally made.1 4

The plot for the old school, the first in the district, was leased to Fr. Fitzpatrick in 1846, so that school, now the property of John P. Riordan, must have been built about 1847. It consisted of one room for boys and one for girls. In 1880 an addition was made of a large room 40' by 80' and allotted to boys.
The new school which replaced this was built in 1938 by Mr. Denis McSweeney. The addition above-mentioned was made at the western side of the original building. John P. Riordan's house is part of the old portion - reconstructed.
Built in 1912 by Mr. Coffey contractor with Mr. Flynn as Foreman. This was the first school in the district and it was thought apparently that a four-roomed school would be required. The attendance (which was expected to be about 160) started with 38 boys and 45 girls. It is doubtful if there were four teachers even at the start. After a very short time, 1917, the school was amalgamated and was served by two teachers.
This building was completely reconstructed in 1961 at a cost of £5,000. The parish contributed one-seventh, £710 + £125 for the site.
