The former Latin School at Moyne was a Classical school located near the rural village in north County Longford. Tracing its roots back to historic hedge schools, the school became a preparatory school for the priesthood, with graduates going on to serve in parishes Ireland and Britain, but also in North America, Australia and Africa and beyond. The local community has come together to remember the Latin School and tell its story, and share their memories of attending this remarkable place of learning.
