Principal’s Address

As Principal of Scoil Aireagail I welcome you to our website. Scoil Aireagail is an excellent school and I am privileged to have been afforded the opportunity to contribute to the education of a generation of young people from the community. I do so in collaboration with a dedicated staff, a committed Board of Management, a loyal community and a hugely supportive Kilkenny/Carlow ETB.
