A somewhat late 'thank you' for the further contributions which gives me plenty to work with.

A Happy New Year to all!

Thanks for the directions!

I think Glen Ban School is now well and truly located!

I'm still not certain about Heath House (or simply The Heath). I had decided that it was north of Ballacolla Road as I've marked on the first image below.

Is 'your' Heathhouse in the group of buildings south of station house in the second image below?

(Google satellite view is not good for this area, so I used Bing maps.)
