Welcome to Scoil Aireagail, Ballyhale

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. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our students’ education and are committed to realising the potential of each individual student.

Scoil Aireagail has woven itself into the fabric of the community in South Kilkenny for generations. I hope to see this relationship strengthen further and look forward to working and engaging with all in the school community in order to fulfil our shared aspirations for our students.

Mr. Liam O’Brien
