Coláiste Chiaráin, Croom, Co. Limerick is situated just twenty minutes from the heart of Limerick city.This coeducational post- primary college offers full-time education
to boys and girls from first year to Leaving Certificate level, ranging in age from twelve to eighteen years. Currently one of the fastest growing post-primary schools in Ireland, the college has built up a national reputation in the delivery of a high quality and progressive educational programme, particularly with
its emphasis on the sciences, languages, Information and Communication Technology and overall commitment to innovation, in
all that it does. With the appointment of Mr. Noel Malone as Headmaster in 1999, Coláiste Chiaráin refocused much of its educational provision towards providing an educational
school community which is, at this point, unlike any other second level school in Ireland. In 2004, the Headmaster, Mr. Noel Malone was awarded the Dell Technology Award for Excellence in Education, the first recipient, outside of the United States of America. The present school building was built in 1987
and has become unsuitable for the level of expansion in student population currently taking place. As a result, the Department of Education and Science has agreed to provide a brand new school building and associated campus on a green-field site with a capacity for eight hundred students.This ambitious building programme is currently under way and when completed, promises to be one of the largest and best-equipped facilities in the city and county.
