Description   Accordion player Thelma Ramsey, who provided the accompaniment on 'School Around the Corner', during the recording of an episode in Scoil Muire in Glasnevin, Dublin, in March 1964. The young girl sitting in the left background is seven-year-old Caroline Heffernan. This edition of 'School Around the Corner' was broadcast by Telefís Éireann on 5 April 1964. It was presented by teacher and broadcaster Paddy Crosbie and produced by the writer James Plunkett.

In addition to presenting the show, Paddy Crosbie was the originator and writer of 'School Around the Corner'. The show was first broadcast by Radio Éireann in 1954, and ran continuously until 1961 when it was transferred to Telefís Éireann (RTÉ Television). It was the first Telefís Éireann programme to be pre-recorded in 1961; the first episode was broadcast on 2 January 1962. The programme continued until 1966 on RTÉ Television before returning to RTÉ Radio for another year. It was again revived on radio in 1973 and ran on RTÉ Television from 1990-1994. An RTÉ Guide article outlining the programme's history was published on 1 June 1973.
