1916 LETTERS / REPORT ANNE CASSIN
Often when we think of prominent figures from history they are synonymous in our minds with momentous events. Mention the name Patrick Pearse and the 1916 Rising springs to mind but in addition to being a revolutionary Pearse was also a teacher and the driving force behind Scoil Eanna. It functioned as a school for less than 30 years unfortunately, but counted among it’s pupils, three boys – Joseph, Donnall and Maurice McGilligan.
