  • Your husband's grandfather, who was the headmaster, was named "Michael J. Kelly"? Or maybe you are just referring to my grandfather who was named Michael J. Kelly, just trying to clarify.

    Michael Joseph Kelly 1864-1936 was the headmaster at this school. His youngest son Gerard Kelly was my husbands father.  Does this help?  Please contact me on kelly55and56@gmail.com so that we can chat and sort it out.
