Timeless Teachings in a Changing World

We have a warm and welcoming environment in Kilroe, where we focus on the strengths of each of our pupils.

We arrange many tours and outings for our pupils, and we focus on active 'hands on' learning in our school.


Student Life





Music is taught and encouraged throughout the school, with an emphasis on song singing and playing the tin whistle. We were delighted to have the Berrill family come and do workshop with our students. We have many talented music students in our school.

Vistorious Acorn Shield Winners!

Well done to our gaelic footballs, who overcame Shrule and then Headford Boys to win the Acorn Shield in Caherlistrane recently.



We also take part in soccer competitions. Our senior girls team had great success at a recent FAI schools blitz - topping their group!


We promote creativity throughout the school. Every two years we hold a Christmas concert. The children are encourged throughout the year to express themselves creatively by forming their own mini dramas.

The Teacher

Noble the trade of the teacher:

Like a king on the edge of the strand,

Placing the vessels on the waves

And out they sail to the open sea.


Lovely the trade of the teacher:

Like a gardener on a July day,

Changing the glory of growth,

From sunshine to harvest.


Lonely the trade of the teacher:

Like a mother all alone,

After the departure of her family,

Over the threshold and far away.
