With schools reopening shortly why not take a look at alternate types of education in Tipperary over four centuries. Read about the history of some notable Tipperary schools such as the Clonmel Grammar School. Listen to the podcast on the Abbey School in Tipperary Town. Have a look at our hedge schoolmaster’s notebook, check out samples of early textbooks or try your hand at some arithmetic in pounds, shillings and pence. These are just some of the topics covered in our online exhibition.
With particular thanks to Michael Ahern and Denis Marnane for their contributions
