Killeeneen National School

Killeeneen National School is a modern, dynamic thirteen teacher rural school. Included in our staff there are nine Mainstream Teachers, three Special Education Teachers, an administrative principal, three Special Needs Assistants, a secretary, a caretaker and a cleaner.

Killeeneen N.S. provides an education that is broad and rich in diversity. It is a school that is conscious of its environment and its past. The history of Killeeneen National School dates back to 1878. Liam Mellowes began his leadership of the 1916 Rising in Galway from Killeeneen National School, which was then situated on the Fauba road. The present building was opened as a two-teacher school in 1960.


Over the years, we have been continually expanding and improving our facilities. At present, we have ten classrooms, a new large G.P. Room, special education rooms, a large library and offices. We have excellent playing facilities, pitches, a ball wall, soft play area, dressing rooms and tarmac areas for the children during the winter months. We have also greatly improved car parking facilities.

In Killeeneen National School, we cater for the many and varied needs of our children and school community and we provide extensive opportunities that help promote the development of the individual child.
