So spring has come to the Five Glens as the first of the grub-like catkins appear on the boughs of the early hazel, and what with all the abundant rain, Glencar waterfall lets down her long hair and shakes it loose.  Alas in Manorhamilton yet another meet, on another chilly spring night with the grand old dame of The Parlour smiling her Mona Lisa smile and shaking her creaky bones as we prepared to set sail and man the ship.  We have begun to chart out a course for the Five Glens with the formidable Phoebe, Chelsea, Charlie, Anna, Mary T, Stephen and Steve all listening and sounding out their thoughts. There is a poster now, drawn up by the fabulous Chelsea with Stephen ringing the headline and Charlie at home as we speak, scratching out a template for the official poster in her wonderful calligraphic style.  We’ll be posting the call for proposals on every dog house, hen house, pub, club, tub, under every shrub and over them, on the windows and doors across the county, so snatch one of those tabs, start noodling, send us your ideas before the 1st of March,  either to the email address listed below, or if you prefer, to the postal address, we can’t wait to see them!

  If you attended the Technical (Vocational) School, the De La Salle boys National School or St Joseph's College then  Prin Duignan's latest book on education in Manorhamilton  'A Right not a Privilege' will be of interest to you.

  This book chronicles the developments in education in Manorhamilton from 1930 to 1970. It outlines the background leading to the arrival of the De La Salles;  the founding and early years of the Vocational school and the eventual opening of St Joseph's College, a lay co-educational non-denominational secondary school.

  The book is for sale at €12.00 per copy in Supervalu, Bredin's Newsagents, Séan Mc Morrow's, Costcutters, Mullin's Filling Station, Harold Thompson in Manorhamilton. It is also for sale in Clancy's and Ben Mc Hugh's Glenfarne, the Market House Blacklion, Post Offices in Drumkeerin, Dromahair, and Killargue, Spar Kinlough, Mulvey's and the Reading Room Carrick-on-Shannon, Liber Books Sligo. It will shortly be available to buy 'on line'.

  

Prin Duignan's recent local history publication 'A Right not a Privilege' St Joseph's College Manorhamilton & Educational Initiatives  1930-1970 is now available to buy on line at www.drumlinpublications.com. The book chronicles the struggle of a small community to get full secondary education in Manorhamilton, leading finally to the opening in 1955 of St Joseph's College, a lay, co-educational non denominational school. It recalls the roles played in North Leitrim education by prominent churchmen such as Cardinal Mc Rory and Bishops Finegan, Lyons,and Quinn of Kilmore and it details the incidents of disagreement and dispute between local clergy and the Manorhamilton school committees.
Other aspects of the story include events leading to the establishment of the Vocational school and the short-lived Brady private school (set up by Paul Brady's grandmother Oonagh) and the coming of the De La Salle Brothers in 1940.
Anyone interested in adding to their knowledge of  local history should find this book interesting. Check out the photos albums on St Joseph's College FACEBOOK page.
