Announcement of New School

The Department of Education and Skills has given approval for our proposed new school to go to construction in 2017.  Work on the design phase of the new school will soon be completed.

Our thanks to all who have helped in any way down through the years...a huge effort to secure the project was put in by so many people....Staff, Boards of Management, Parents' Association, Clergy, the local Community and Politicians from every political persuasion. We now move forward to ensure construction as quickly as possible. The work continues.

A small delegation from the Board of Management met with the Minister for Education, Mr.Richard Bruton T.D. in the Dáil in May 2017. The meeting was arranged to ensure that the final stages in the design and plannng phase of the new sschool building would be completed as quickly as possible to allow the school to go to tender later this year.



Please note that we have a complete range of Uniform jumpers in stock and these will be available throughout the year.

Children are asked to wear the uniform at all times.
