Travelling around the counrty .. it seems that there are far more of the one room schools than what appear on the OPW's list. This raises the possibility that some were built through an alternative fund .. but to a similar design .. I'm not sure of this, but it seems logical. All of these buildings have the date of their completion on a stone inset on to the facade.

Worth having a look at http://www.buildingsofireland.ie (I think) and doing a search by Building Type within the individual surveys.

I am doing some study work on a particular 20th century National school, from the mid 1920s.
I know quiet a bit about its local history etc; but what I'm interested in if anyone could help is on the National Level such as the particular book on the history of the Board of Works, or is there any articles or published material on say, early Free State policy towards education etc.
Also in the back of my head is the memory that the National School as a type was on some list for public vote as Irish Building of the Twentieth Century, Think it may have only been 4-5 years ago, as in well after the millennium (in true Irish fashion).
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
