Notes:

Some names and townlands are spelled differently in the school records from how we now spell them, for example "Halferty" instead of "Helferty" and "Clunkillymore" instead of "Clonkillymore". We did not correct these spellings dfferences.

Some text in the records is unreadable, wherever we could not read some text we have inserted an asterisk character to represent the unreadable text, for example in the following date we could not read the day of the month "*/6/1920".

From 1932 onwards the records were written in Irish, wherever we were not sure of the English translation of some text we have left the text in Irish and placed brackets around
it, for example (Ceairaian na gCanonach)

There will certainly be many inaccuracies in the records, in particular many of the Dates of Birth will be inaccurate, if you find any errors or inaccuracies in our records then
please let me know (Email)

We tried to cross reference the Kilmacrennan school records against the 1901 Census records. For each student who is also present in the 1901 Census records there is a link beside the student's name below. Clicking on this link will open this student's family record in the 1901 (under construction)
