Info for Parents

A new school in Maynooth! An Foras Pátrúnachta are opening a new multi-denominational Gaelscoil in Maynooth in September 2019, offering parents a great new school type. See further information below.

Why choose a new Gaelscoil?


The school will open in Gaelscoil Uí Fhiaich, Maynooth. We’re delighted to be joining our Irish-medium neighbours at the start of a new chapter in Maynooth.

Our staff

We are delighted to have Príomhoide Póla appointed as Principal.

The school will open with Junior infants only. We appoint our second teacher at 18 students and therefore we have a maximum pupil teacher ratio of 17:1 – a hugely valuable resource for your child as they begin their journey with us.

We will recruit our learning support teacher and secretary this summer.
