Full title: The Hedge Schools of Wicklow

Creator / Author: Thomas O’Rourke

Item Type / Page count: Book / 216p

When Published: 2015

Publisher / Place of Publication: Eagle Rock / Ballydoreen, Ashford, Co. Wicklow

About: Education has always been held in high regard in Ireland. So-called hedge schools preserved a link between the Bardic Schools of the Gaelic era and the introduction of the National School system in the first half of the nineteenth century. Hedge schools proliferated following the enactment of the Penal Laws and, although not necessarily located beside hedgerows, they became an unofficial system of education in their own right. In this well researched book, the author provides the historical context for hedge schools and provides a checklist of known locations of hedge schools in each barony of the county of Wicklow.

When Published: 2006

Publisher / Place of Publication: Nonsuch Publishing Limited/ 73 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin 2.

About: The Table of Contents of this book doesn’t even begin to offer a hint to the wealth of information contained in it. Apart from a street directory, public transport information and public administration information for each of the chosen years, most of the book is taken up with accounts of events that occurred in the intervening years and helped shape Baltinglass and its immediate hinterland. In particular, the author focuses on the people involved and there is a feeling that you could be reading a newspaper report of something that just happened yesterday. If we ever get the time, we would like to list the entire contents and make them more discoverable.
