New schools in Saggart and Donabate

Mar 27, 2020

We’re delighted to welcome two new Irish-medium primary schools for 2020: Gaelscoil Lir, which will open in Saggart, and Gaelscoil na Mara, which will open in Donabate. 

See the announcement below from An Foras Pátrúnachta:

A Chairde,

Thank you for your support for a new Gaelscoil and voting for An Foras Pátrúnachta to run the school. Our applications were successful and Gaelscoil Lir and Gaelscoil na Mara will open this September!

There is further information, registration forms etc. available on our website at: and

We will continue to post updates to our Facebook page, our email list and our website.

We’re delighted to be setting up your new Gaelscoil but it is hard to get word to parents during the lockdown. We’d really appreciate if you could let other parents in the area know – it’s good to hear good news for a change!

Le buíochas,
Bainisteoir Scoile
