From the 1930's to the early fifties Irish language classes took place in several parts of Lavey parish.It is my understanding that a regular class took place in Drummuck with Miss Margaret (Maggie ) Boyle as teacher.A number of people attended this class from Mayogall ,Dreenan and Upperlands.I am interested in hearing from anyone who can remember anything about this Irish class and any other Irish classes in the Lavey area.Cassie Murray was a great teacher and promoter of Irish in our parish.Any help much appreciated and you can contact me Micheal Boyle mboyle@roadrunner.nf.net
