Evacuees at Leckpatrick National School
(The Glebe School)
16 Sep 1940 to 10 Feb 1945
From the original registers borrowed from the Artigarvan Primary School

Transcribed, Compiled & Submitted by Rene Donaghy



Evacuees came from Belfast, Newtownards or Londonderry and in the early days of the war it can be surmised that they may have had some kinship connections with the area. However, two events in 1941 led to larger numbers of children being sent out to country areas.

The edition of The Strabane Weekly News of April 26, 1941 reported that at least 529 evacuees had been placed in billets around the Strabane area in the course of 4 or 5 days after the blitz in Belfast.

On 16 Apr 1941, two large parachute mines exploded in Messines Park, Londonderry leaving 13 dead.

Some children stayed just a week or two, while some stayed several years and others moved between city and country at various times during the war.

Note: Spelling of names is as recorded in the books.
