HC Deb 06 July 1911 vol 27 c1468W

asked the Chief Secretary what steps the Board of National Education (Ireland) propose to take, and how soon, with a view to providing educational opportunities for, and to save from growing up in ignorance, the fourteen children of school-going age whose parents reside in the valley between Erriff Bridge and Aasleagh, in the parish of Aghagower, county Mayo, and who have no such opportunities at present?


The question of erecting a new schoolhouse on a convenient site in this district to replace an existing unsuitable building is at present under the consideration of the Commissioners of National Education, but they are not yet in a position to determine what they may be able to do in the interest of these children.
