Visit from Larry Curran

Written on 02/06/2019

Larry Curran visited the school last week to tell the children all about his quite remarkable Grandfather. ‘Pop’ as he called him was not only on duty in Boland’s Mill during the 1916 rising but was also one of the Commanding officers in the Magazine Fort when it was raided in 1939.
Larry regaled the students with stories of his beloved Pop who lived quite the life.
He also showed the children his Phonograph and explained how it plays music.
