Hi Emma, To the best of my knowledge School Lane is also known as Chapel Lane just beside St Marys Church in Irishtown ( http://clonmelonline.com/clonmel/old-lanes-of-clonmel/lanes-of-irishtown-clonmel/ )

School Lane was a cul-de-sac from Kickham Stto the old National School, “The Old School”.
The Christian Brothers house and garden was on right side, a row of demolished (1940) on left side.
