Welcome to Gaelscoil Chill Dara

Fáilte romhaibh ar fad go Gaelscoil Chill Dara. It is my honour to welcome you to our school as the newly appointed principal. I hope that the years ahead of us are enjoyable and beneficial to us all students, parents, teachers and school staff. I hope that your children have a happy time with GSCD and that we can all work together with mutual understanding and co-operation to ensure a wonderful start for you child.

Since the doors opened in 1995 with Seán de Paor, Principal (1995 - 2019), Caitríona Uí Mhuireasa and 29 children we have grown and we now have 22 Teachers, 3 SNAs and 377 children on the roll book. Gaelscoil Chill Dara is our small Gaeltacht and we are very proud to hear the Irish language being spoken by our school community on the edge of the Curragh, as well as the high standard of education which the teachers and staff provide through Irish.

We are very grateful as a staff to our Comhairle na dTuismitheoirí who are very active in guiding and promoting our school.
I wish you all the very best in 2021.
Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine.

We are grateful to parents for cooperating with us in this regard.
