Secondary / Gaelcholáiste:
We are applying to open 11 new Gaelcholáistí in 2020 and 2021.
Each Gaelcholáiste will be a co-ed, multi-denominational, secondary school.
Each area needs a new school to cater for a growing population. We want to give parents a new choice of a multi-denominational gaelcholáiste.
Why choose a Gaelcholáiste?:
