New Multi-denominational Gaelscoil opening 2020

Gaelscoil Lir

An Foras Pátrúnachta will open Gaelscoil Lir in September 2020 to cater for the Citywest, Saggart, Newcastle area. We’re delighted to be providing parents with a new school choice – a co-ed, multi-denominational and multilingual Gaelscoil. In our school, everyone is welcome and everyone is equal – a #Gaelscoil4all! We look forward to providing excellent education and to always putting the happiness of our students first.


Our staff

We have begun the process to recruit our school principal. We will recruit our second teacher during the summer. As such, we will have a maximum Pupil:Teacher ratio of 16:1 – a great benefit to your child as they begin their education with us!
