The ‘Old’ Quay School was built in 1885. It was built on land donated to the parish by the Cowley family. It closed its doors as a school in 1981, and apart from 2 years of occupation in 2003 to 2005, it remained unused. By 2013, it had become unsightly. We then approached St. Muredach’s Trust with the aim of securing a long term lease and restoration of this centennial building for use as a base. Every effort as been made to retain the heritage of this old building.
