School admission books for Mount St Josephs School Clondalkin Dublin
« 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.

thank you Girl Guide apologies for such a long delay I haven't been too well so have not been around or researching for a while. I was looking for my granddad who told us he was an orphan and was educated at Mount St Josephs Clondalkin in exchange for the children working in the fields there his name was Edward O'Brien I'm unsure what his exact age would have been but I know he was born between 1889 and 1894 I know that's not much to go on but if you find any Edward O'Briens on the registers i would appreciate any information it holds thank you

The only Edward O'Brien who appears is one born in 1906 and attending St. Brides Infant.  Lived in Golden Lane.

I've checked using the birth years that you gave but no O'Brien appears.

It may be worth getting your topic moved to the Ireland board and see if that gets a better response.  There may be Rootschatters who have better access to Irish records.

To move it click on the Report to Moderator in blue at the bottom right of the page you are on and ask for it to be moved to the Ireland Board.

If you get stuck, let me know and I will contact the moderator for you.

Could this be him ? if so there should be workhouse record's for him, family's usually got a small fee for taking on nurse children who were usually used as free labour.
He's the only Edward O'Brien/OBrien/Brien in Clondalkin.

yes we think thats probably him though we have never gotten definite proof of that there are a lot of boys similar age and name in the workhouse records we are trying to figure out where he got the name from because his parents were Coyne from Kildare
