He continued in his studies until he qualified as a teacher in the De La Salle Teacher Training College in Waterford City. As a teacher, Ashe took up the position of Principal at Corduff National School in Lusk, County Dublin. He was a member of the Irish Volunteers and the Gaelic League. Through his links with these organisations, Ashe was recruited into the Irish Republican Brotherhood. Free article
