Title: Summerhill Girls School Athlone
Post by: Murrell on Monday 14 June 21 23:30 BST (UK)
Hi everyone, Hope I'm posting on  correct page. Summerhill Girls School Athlone County Meath.
My grandmother Catherine/Kate Kearns was referred there from Rathdrum Workhouse in 1912 until 1918 while her brother John was sent to St Joseph's Athlone until 1917.
I have seen some information about Summerhill but wondered if there would be any archive records from Kate's time there. This is a period she never spoke about and l have only learnt of this recently.
