Townawilly Tenantry School[1]

The Commissioners of Education in their 1848 report mention that they had build a 'substantial' school in Townawilly.

In 1858 the Commissioners reported that pupils attending the school got little educational benefit as the master could not speak Irish, while the junior classes could not speak English. The total number on the roll was 87. All were free students and only three were non-Catholic.
