 The School Plough 

It is a Pierce plough and it was made in Wexford. Peter Morrissey bought it after the war. He used it for ploughing the soil on his farm. It was used a lot. It took two horses to pull it. In the olden days he often started ploughing at six o’clock in the morning and would not finish until late in the evening with only a short break at lunchtime. Peter fed his horses in what they called a ‘nose bags’. He took off the bridles to allow them to eat. They stuck their heads and munched away. When the plough turned the soil the seagulls came in hundreds for worms in the soil. They were a great sight. 
Years later Peter’s son Brian gave the plough to our school as his family were attending at the time. Brian is married to my favourite Aunt Kitty. It was left on display on the flat roof of the school for years and was a familiar landmark. 
Nowadays this plough is left in the school garden just outside our classroom window to remind us of times gone by and of the nice people who were associated with our school down through the years.
