There is a long tradition of school-teaching in Margaret McGrath’s family, the Brennans. Her grandfather built Smithstown School in 1885. Margaret was born into a family of 12 children. At a young age she was appointed Principal and after 19 years she continued her career in the local parish school. All the changes in teaching practice and curricula since 1957 are discussed in this fascinating recording.
