Caher School


This charming private home was once Caher School. According to Ann MCCarthy in her book' Under the Shadow of Suifin', the first pupil who enrolled there was James Tobin of Balieragh. By the turn of the 20C conditions must have been basic and the school was replaced by the Sheep's Head National School, a little further west, which opened in 1909. The last principal of Caher  School was  Mr Daniel J Coghlan.
