Newtownards Primary School

My grandfather, Thomas McCracken Gilmore, taught here in the early 1900s as his first formal teaching assignment after being certified to teach at a National School.  His father was a School Master in Jerretspass, County Armagh.  His sister Mary was also certified as a National School teacher and taught in the south.  His younger brother, Victor was in training at the Marlboro Street School in Dublin when he caught pneumonia and passed in 1918.
