Cloghroe’s First Church
During the time of the Penal Code/Laws, mass was said out of doors, on the land now owned by Edmund O’Keeffe, at the location highlighted in the picture on the right. The local landlord, observing their plight, made a site available for a chapel at Currabeha, in the early 1800s. The building that was erected, below left, is still extant about a quarter mile west of the present Church, served as a Church until 1858 and subsequently as a National Primary School. The building on the right was added as a Girls School in 1882 and the middle building was added later. The pictured plaque was moved to the present school where it is in the garden.
