Creggan Charter School 1737-1811
by Mary Cumiskey 2007

A study of the Charter School between these years. A story of well-intentioned but misguided people whose ethos was to educate Popish children in the Protestant faith - an ambitious plan that promised much but failed the children totally.

Creggan - A Celtic Christian Site
by Geraldine Carville 1996

Using a unique and controversial dateing method involving astronomy, Dr. Carville, a historical geographer, determines that an old stone building in Creggan Churchyard may be an early christian site with tangible links with St. Jarlath, 3rd Archbishop of Armagh. Liberally sprinkled with maps, diagrams and photographs, the book describes some aspects of the early christian church, the life and times of St. Jarlath and the origin, community life and ultimate demise of the Ceile De (the Culdees).
