School system : Somewhat similar to nowadays, except most of the teachers back then were members of religious orders, in Castlebar they were in the De La Salle order.Learning involved a lot of committing to memory, as distinct from appreciation. Correct use of language, including a heavy emphasis on grammer, was emphasised. Lots of the subjects were interspersed with the Irish language. Religion was given a high priority.
