Innisrush Primary School, 1951-52

Students of Innisrush Primary School in academic year 1951 – 1952

This is a photograph taken at Innisrush Primary School during the 1951/52 academic year. To give some context of the era, after many months of ill-health, King George VI died in February 1952, and the subsequent coronation of Queen Elizabeth 2 took place.

Anyway, back to the photograph.  The Rogers (Maisie, Jean and William), who have played such a prominent role in Tamlaght O’Crilly Lower Church over the decades, feature in the image.  It’s also wonderful to see the Head Teacher Mrs Crockett.  I knew her from over 25 years later, when playing indoor bowls at Tamlaght O’Crilly Upper church hall (in the late 1970s).

For the purposes of google, bing, yahoo and the other search engines, the names are:
