This chapter examines influenza’s effects on institutions. It pieces together different sources, including the correspondence between the General Prisons Board and their officers, and the journal reports from Clongowes Wood College, a Jesuit boarding school in County Kildare, to create a narrative of how the flu impinged on the daily life of people within these institutions, and how their management reacted to reduce the impact.
