Golden NS – Baba Stritch

Margaret ‘Baba’ Stritch (nee Blake) penned an article in the early 1990s giving her memories of the village of Golden in the 1930s. Now deceased, ‘Baba’ was very highly regarded in the community and lived in the village of Golden until her death. She was enrolled at Golden National School on the Abbey Road in July 1920 and attended until July 1931. Mr. Morrissey (School Principal) read the article for the purposes of this project as it offers a hugely valuable insight into life in Golden during the 1930s, a period of huge national and international change.
