The Fanore School Case


The Fanore School Case is one of the most bizzare episodes in the history of Irish education. At the centre of the case was Michael O'Shea, principal teacher at the Fanore National School, who was dismissed in 1914 from his post by the school manager, the local parish priest Fr. Patrick Keran, allegedly for refusing to marry the assistant teacher in his school, O'Shea himself being engaged to another girl at the time.
