Gaelscoil Laighean

Info for Parents

An Foras Pátrúnachta opened our school as a multi-denominational Gaelscoil in September 2019, offering parents a great new choice. See further information below.


Our school is located at Kill Lane, Deansgrange until summer 2021. We are awaiting an announcement from the Dept. of Education in relation to our long term location.

Our school

Gaelscoil Laighean (pronounced ‘Lion’) is a co-educational, multi-denominational and Irish-medium primary school. We will grow to 8 classes, one of each class group. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is equal. A Gaelscoil4all! We provide the highest standard of education with a holistic approach. Above all, the happiness off our students comes first.

We are delighted to have appointed Príomhoide Aoife and Múinteoir Caitríona. Their extensive experience and love of Irish culture will be a great asset to the school.


Registration is now open. 
1. The registration form (bilingual) is available here.
2. Our enrolment policy for 2020-21 (bilingual) is available here.

Please note for all later years, the school will accept registrations the year before the child will start in school only. This is in line with provisions made in the Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018.
