Basketball success!!


Congratulations to the second year boys basketball team who have qualified for the south east regional finals having topped their group winning all their games against St. Endas, Cresent Comprehensive, Gaelcholaiste and St. Nessans

Well done also to our 2nd year girls who were narrowly defeated by St Nessan's by 15 points to 13 in extra time in the semi final of the Limerick league Plate competition.

Thank you to their coaches Ms. Mary Casey and Mr. Cathal Fitzagerald.

Green light for new campus for Coláiste Chiaráin


Minister for Education and Skills, Mr. Ruairi Quinn, TD, has announced details of 219 new school building projects. The new schools will be built as part of a €1.5bn programme. The plan sees the construction of 106 new primary schools, 43 new secondary schools and eight special schools. There will be extensions to 65 primary schools, 49 secondary schools and four special schools.

The great news for us is that the plan includes confirmation that our new school will go to construction in 2013. The new school will be built for 1,000 students and will be the largest second level building project ever, in Limerick city and county. This week, the Design Team has been appointed and work is well under way to have this work completed by next October.

Please note, the announcement, as published on the Department of Education and Skills website, inadvertently and in error, referred to our new school campus, as an “extension”. This mistake has been addressed and will be amended accordingly.

I am issuing this statement to avoid any confusion.

This is an exciting time for us all and I am looking forward to working with all our partners to bring the new school to realization next year, our seventy-fifth anniversary.
