Official Opening

The Official Opening of Kildalkey N.S. took place last Friday, 28th September.


On what was a beautiful September day, the key was turned in the old school by Paddy Corrigan, the oldest surviving past pupil.

The school then marched behind four drummers accompanied by the sixth class providing some colourful scenes!


Bishop Deenihan then blessed the new school and shortly after, Minister Bruton cut the ribbon signalling that the new school had been officially opened!

Opening 7

Speeches were held in the hall, with addresses by the chairperson of the Board of Management Colin Finnegan, Bishop Deenihan, 6th class student Ellen Johnston, Principal Mr. Fox, the chairperson of the Parents' Association Shiofra Keogh and of course, the Minister for Education and Skills Mr. Richard Bruton T.D. The ceremony was punctuated throughout by beautiful songs from the choir before being closed with some gorgeous  Irish dancing from Chanel, Chloe and Jennah.



Thanks to one and all for their help on what was a momentous day for the school. It is a day that will live long in the memory and an historic one for all both affiliated with Kildalkey N.S. and with Kildalkey in general. The school, particularly the Hall, looked majestic with some beautiful art designs on display. The choir were superb with thanks to the teachers in charge and thanks also to Miss O'Sullivan for her beautiful rendition of 'A Mhuire Mháthair' at the old school. There are too many to thank to list everyone but thanks to all who added in any way to the day!

Thanks to all who have been involved in this great publication.



Open Night Success

Thanks to all who came down to our recent Open Night to celebrate our new school.


We had a huge turnout with many present and past students, as well as local parishioners attending.


The Open Night coincided with the pre launch of the book 'Kildalkey N.S. - Memories through the Years.


There weree many, many copies of this book sold, with people keenly interested in the publication, which looks great.


Thanks to all who made the night the huge success it was.


School Open Night

Kildalkey's new school will (finally!) open its doors on Thursday, 6th September.

That evening from 7 o'clock to 8 o'clock, the community is invited to come down to the new school to view it. All members of the community are invited to see what all the fuss is about!

We are very proud of our new school, with all the facilities the students will now be able to utilise and we'd like to extend the opportunity to all to see the finished building.

Looking forward to seeing people there on the night!

School Reopening - 6th September

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Board of Management has had to defer the opening of the new school until Thursday, 6th September.

Students will begin school that day at 9.30 in the new school. Junior Infants will finish at 12.

The Board apologises for any inconvenience caused but the health and safety of all children took precedence and the late opening was unavoidable in this instance.

We look forward to starting school in our new building!
