More collections of Tipperary school register/roll books digitised

Tipperary Studies has digitised and published historical records from two more National School in the county. They date back to late 19th century and from Killenaule and Graystown National Schools (NS). They bring to seven the number of school collections now available through the TipperaryStudies Digital Archive.

Some of the names in the 1871 register

The Girls’ school register from 1871 to 1919 is the earliest collection from Killenaule, while from Graystown NS, both the Boys' and Girls' registers date from 1919 to 1923.

These records provide a comprehensive view of the students who attended the schools, their enrolment dates, attendance records, and potentially glimpses into their academic achievements. Genealogists and local historians will find these records invaluable for tracing family connections, studying patterns of migration, and understanding the social and cultural context of the schools.

TipperaryStudies is the local studies department of Tipperary Libraries and is engaged in a long-term project to digitise relevant historical material records that it either holds or can 'borrow' for digitisation purposes from local businesses, agencies and individuals. These latest registers and books wsre kindly loaded to for digitisation by Killenaune NS. View the Schools Collection here.
