Convent Girls School. This school began in 1841 following the arrival of the Presentation Sisters in Millstreet Other details on page 43.

Aubane National School

This school was built on land provided by Humphrey O'Donoghue, close to Aubane cross. The builder was John Coffey of Midleton, who had previously been involved in the construction of Cullen Church. Mr Flynn was works foreman. It opened on August 12th 1913 and had a roll of 28 boys and 35 girls. Management was vested in the Diocese.

The first principal was Bridget O'Shea, assisted by Mary Ellen Corcoran of Minor Row. The two roomed school, which initially segregated boys and girls, was amalgamated in 1917. Timothy Corkerry of Pound Hill became the new principal. It closed in 1974 and the building is now used as a vibrant Community Centre. The Registers have been published by the Aubane Historical Society.

Conclusion

In this publication an attempt has been made to chronicle the development of education from the Bardic Schools, through the humble clandestine enterprise which was the Hedge Schools of Penal Times, to the more open, fee paying schools preceding the introduction of State funded education which came with the advent of the National School Act of 1831. Some information is included which goes beyond the terminal date indicated, viz. 1900. The reason for this was to provide a sense of continuity with the present and for the sake of logical completion. This record needs to be supplemented with a study of the development of Second level education and the ecclesiastical history of Millstreet Parish, together with other significant changes which took place during the 20th Century.

As regards the ecclesiastical history of the Parish, we have traced its progress up to the end of the 19th century. Since then many changes have taken place. The Churches of Cullen and Ballydaly have been built and Millstreet Parish Church was extensively refurbished. Profound changes have taken place in the manner of worship as a result of the Second Vatican Council's reforms of the liturgy. Likewise there have been great changes in the social and economic environment of the area throughout the 20t h century. To chronicle the history of the Parish during the past century is a challenging task which hopefully will be undertaken to bring this account up to date and to a fitting completion.
