A new Gaelscoil will open in the Firhouse area in 2013 under the patronage of An Foras Pátrúnachta. The new Gaelscoil will be an Irish-medium school that is co-educational with a multi-denominational spiritual characteristic.
An Foras Patrúnachta is still accepting applications for places in the new school. Parents who are interested in this school can get an application form here.
The application form should be completed and posted to An Foras Patrúnachta, Bloc K3, Campus Gnó Mhaigh Nuad, Maigh Nuad, Co Chill Dara as soon as possible.
An Foras Pátrúnachta, the new school’s patron, campaigned for a Gaelscoil in the Tallaght area in 2011 and received significant parental support. An Foras Pátrúnachta then submitted an application for patronage of the new school in October, 2011.
The Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairí Quinn announced in March 2012 the patronage for the new primary schools opening in September, 2012 and September, 2013. An Foras Pátrúnachta is delighted to be the patron of three new Gaelscoileanna, including Tallaght, opening in 2012 and 2013.
