Lacken National School

Roll Books (Boys) (1865-1922)

Roll Books (Girls) (1889-1922)

Lacken National School was located in Lacken Townland, east of Kilmihil village. The first school opened in 1846 in a house owned by Sonny Meaney. This was replaced in 1896 by a purpose-built school. The school served a catchment area that included Lacken, Kilmihil Village, Cahercanivane, Lack East, Knockalough and Ballydinneen. The school closed in 1995 and was replaced by a new school in Kilmihil Village. The Lacken school roll books and other school records were donated to Clare County Library by Carmel Coughlan, Principal, Kilmihil National School and are now in Clare County Archives. The registers were transcribed by Brian Doyle and Peter Beirne of the Local Studies Centre.
