About the Book:



Humorous tales and short stories from Cornagun, Co Leitrim, Ireland

from the 1940’s and 1950’s



“Where did you go to school Grandad?” asked James my eldest Grandson, “or did you go to school at all?”


“Of course I went to school, you cheeky rascal, I went to Cornagon school when I was four years old until I was fourteen, spanning the years between 1940 to 1950”.


A very unstable and turbulent decade – it was also a decade that brought us some great achievements – the splitting of the atom – jet propulsion – television and electronics.


There was of course World War Two and the horrific atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki”.


“When was the old school built?” asked James.  “Is it as ancient as you Granddad...?”
