Project Instructions This collection consists of a report into the state of education in Ireland in the year 1824. While this collection has a wide variety of information, only the names of Masters and Mistresses of schools will be keyed in this project.

What Names Should I Key? Please only key names of individuals who appear in the "Names of Masters and Mistresses" column. Do not key names of officials, letter-writers, or applicants. If multiple names appear within the same entry, each name should be keyed into a separate record and the school information should be copied down.
