Female National School 1857 PDF Print E-mail

In 2005 Ms Elizabeth Sloan of Warrenpoint sent these photographs and the following information to Monsignor Connolly:



The teacher in each photograph is Lizzie Logue, my maternal grandmother.  She qualified as a teacher in Our Lady of Mercy College, Baggot Street, Dublin in 1887.  Her mother, Mary (McConnell) also taught in the school.

In the photograph showing less pupils, in the second row are Lizzie’s twin sisters, Madge and Annie Logue (2nd and 4th from Left).  They both ran a Catholic book shop in Ballymena – Hill Street or Broughshane  Street – until the mid 1940’s when they retired to live in Portstewart.  They lived into the 1970’s.  Madge died in March 1973.  Both are buried in Ballymena.
