School admission books
« on: Tuesday 30 March 21 11:09 BST (UK) »
Good Morning all, just wondering if anyone might point me in the right direction, or if any of you have ever come across records belonging to Mount St Josephs School Clondalkin Dublin on your travels? I don't seem to be able to find anything for them anywhere online I'v checked the National Archives website but cant find anything there either so suggestions where else to look would be greatly appreciated, apparently it was a "poor school" and then became a private one before its demise thanks all

Maybe you could contact the school to see if there are any archives.

Find My Past have Ireland National School Registers and Clondalkin is listed.  It comes up with over 13,000 hits but I'm not sure what years are covered.

As you have not mentioned any names I can't check to see if they are there.
