St. Kevin’s Male National School *Scholar’s *
* Donovan Lane & Blackpitts * 24 Blackpitts Road * Blackpitts * Dublin * Ireland *
The former location to St. Kevin’s Boys National School. The current St Kevin’s Boys National School, is a all boys school in Dublin, now located in Finglas West, north Dublin, Ireland with over 300 students rangin in age 4 to 12 and as far as I can tell, has no direct relationship to this former school except the name. This former location is now in ghostly ruins, decaying away as part of Dublin’s history. Tales of this old school were once logged on Google cached Dublin.ie forums speaking of cold, dark, and dreary days of a poorly run school with a very bitter staff. Not much resides on the web about the history of this old school. Its location in Blackpitts is built upon grounds where the black death plague victims were buried (not necessarily exactly where the building now sits). This building was built in 1895 by George Coppinger Ashlin, for the St. Kevin’s Male National Schools in County Dublin, Dublin, in the Blackpitts neighborhood. At one point in its history, it was turned into a drinking pub. It appears from my passing by it the other day to be back in ruins. I’ll post more information as I find it, anyone with information about this building please send data to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks greatly!
