Lismore College
Waterford Standard 2 January 1886

An advert noted that the patron was the Duke of Devonshire.  The Headmaster was Albert A. Honey M.A., formerly Headmaster of Cowper’s House School, Huntington.  The Second Master was H. S. Fawssett ‘late of Exeter College Oxford’.  The ‘Foreign Master’ was Monsieur J. Graziano.

“Sons of Gentlemen are prepared for University, Army, Legal and Medical Professions, Bank of Ireland, Civil Service and Intermediate Examinations.  All the pupils (twelve in number) sent up for the Bank Intermediate, Royal University and Queen’s College, Cork last year were successful.  Particulars of these examinations, with the honors gained, will be sent on application.  There were no failures.

The highest references can be given to parents respecting the diet, moral tone of the school, care taken of young pupils, etc.

Under the present Head Mastership, the school has steadily increased during the past three years, and a proof of its growing popularity is that English and others removed from English schools are now at Lismore”.
