Albert College, Glasnevin Model Farm.

Just reading a little about the origins of the College and teaching and training that went on. The non denominational aspects at the start and the establishment of twenty schools based on this model around the country.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_College_(Dublin)

I see one of the schools was Athy District Model school. And from a website on the history.

http://athymodelschool.ie/history-of-the-school/

It lists.
Limerick.
Galway.
Clonmel.
Waterford.
Kilkenny.
Trim.
Dunmanway.
Ballymena.
Newry.
Coleraine.
Belfast.
And Athy.

Anyone know where the other eight were?

There was another in Enniscorthy.
Opened in 1861.

They must have all been built to a similar plan, because at first glance at that Athy picture I thought I was looking at my old school in Trim...
