Welcome to Scoil Aireagail
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
Following their trip to Dáil Eireann the 3rd Year CSPE class organised a visit from John Paul Phelan
T.D on Friday 12th October. John Paul was elected as a TD for the Carlow–Kilkenny constituency in 2011, and he answered questions from the class about his life in politics. The visit proved to be very beneficial to the students in their study of C.S.P.E. Thanks to Ms. O’Dwyer for organising the event
First year students Amy Duggan and Cian Dungan have qualified for the final of the “Irish Junior Maths Competition 2014″ at De La Salle College, Waterford on Friday night the 9th May.
Also Darragh Aylward and Margaret Irish have been selected as one of the top 500 MATHletes from across Ireland and as a result are representing the school at the Provincial final of the “Mathletes Challenge 2014″ at Dublin City University on Saturday the 10th May.
We wish them well!
Thanks to all who contributed to the event; the catering, music, cleaning, live streaming, contributors to magazine, sponsors for Easter raffle, Parents’ Council, the list goes on and on. I would like to pay a special tribute to the organising committee and to three members in particular; Maureen Roche, Annette Muldowney and Bobby, Theirs was the inspiration and dedication that ensured that it would be the success it was. It was great also to see all previous principals there on the evening. Their contribution to the school is still very much remembered. .
