Skibbereen Heritage Centre uploads School records

Thanks to its committed volunteer team, Skibbereen Heritage Centre in County Cork has added transcriptions to National School registers to its free database. The information recorded in the registers varies but generally includes the pupil's name, approximate age and year of attendance.

The first two sets of registers to join the Skibbereen database are from Drinagh Boys School and Lisheen Girls School. The former holds c180 records, all relating to pupils born 1910 to 1930, and record schoolchildren attending up to the 1940s. The latter, a bigger school, holds records of c420 pupils; with birth years spanning 1881–1920, the entries date up to 1933.

More school register transcriptions will join the database in the future.
