Catholic Convent Girls School, 1889, aka St Patrick's Hall, 3 Parry Street, demolished, now the site of St Patrick's Care Centre. The school may have been known as St Joseph's Girls School, having been established by the Sisters of St Joseph of the Apparition. As far as I can tell, the Girls School and the Hall were the same building. The Hall was sometimes used for entertainments, for example by the Innisfail Theatre Company.
