This Teaching Life: A Memoir of Schooldays in Ireland

Thomas J. McElligott

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

While savouring the past the author looks forward to a secular age in which the limits of class, creed and gender will be transcended.

These vivid recollections by Tom McElligott span five decades and eighteen institutions throughout Ireland, from university in Cork to St Kieran's Kilkenny, Glenstal Co. Limerick, The Royal Cavan, Ballymena Academy, Wilson's Hospital, Headfort, Newbridge, Mountjoy and others. Here a peripatetic lay teacher documents the emergence of his profession against a background of religious control, compulsory Irish and rapid social change, throwing a fascinating light on boarding-school education from the 1930's to the 1970's.
