History of schools in Athenry walk!


Yesterday 4th class headed off on a quick walk around the town to explore the history of schools in Athenry. We saw where Watty’s hedge school used to be on court lane. We also visited the site of the very first primary school in Athenry, where the outdoor handball alley is on Abbey Row. Finally we visited the site of the old boy’s school at Somers petrol station on Old Church Street.
