Classification: Query
Surnames: Dowling
I spent 26 years as Principal of Brownstown/Ballysax National School. In relation to the Dowling query there are school attendance books and original pupil registers dating back to 1901 held in the modern Ballysax N.S. These may be of help. The original Ballysax N.S. opened in 1839, this was replaced by Brownstown N.S. in April 1916, this in turn was replaced by the new Ballysax N.S. in 1994. The three school buildings are within a five minute walking distance of each other. The present Principal Ms. Esther Reddy might be helpful to you regarding accessing the school registers. The descendants and other relatives of Michael Dowling might be
noted in the registers. There is a Dowling family long time resident near the old Brownstown N.S.
