Rockport School's Blue Plaque for WW1 poet and ex-teacher Weaving


As part of their investigations into their First World War connections, School Reporters from Rockport School find out about their past schoolmaster Willoughby Weaving. A war poet, he served from 1914-15 in the Royal Irish Rifles and published several poems after he was injured and returned home.

Willoughby's poems dealt not only with his experiences during WW1 but with Irish landscape and nature. The Ulster History Circle have awarded Rockport School with a 'Blue Plaque' on his behalf.
