Newspaper clipping from Galloway News dated 21.2.2002, 50 years since the closure of Ironmacannie School

Description

50 YEARS AGO
• “It is a great pity to see these country schools being closed down when they are providing social amenities for the district” remarked Mr James Russell at the Stewartry Education meeting on Tuesday when a recommendation by the Glenkens Area Committee that steps by taken to dispose of Ironmacannie School and schoolhouse was considered.
• An acute controversial subject came before the annual meeting of the Castle Douglas branch of the British Legion, when the principle of allowing women to make use of the club as a social organisation of their own, without membership evoked a lively discussion.
• Today’s third round Scottish Cup tie between Queen of the South and Hearts could not have had a better advertisement than the league encounter at Palmerston Park on Saturday when a draw of one goal each just about summed up the relative merits of both elevens.
