Scoil Mocheallóg’s students and staff will be arriving back to a new state of the art school this autumn 19 months after construction began.
Students and faculty will soon be able to avail of 16 new classrooms, a general-purpose hall, 6 resource and learning support rooms. On top of this a specially designed state-of-the-art Special Needs Unit along with a safe raised courtyard has been added to cater for students. The facilities were built on the green field site to the south of the existing Boys School on Glenfield Road. This exisiting 873m2 of school was demolished and a split level new school replaced it, with a single storey entrance. Outside the building, 2 external ballcourts, play areas and ancillary landscaping were also delivered.
The wood panelling and fittings offer a brighter and warmer work environment for the children and we look forward to feed-back in the coming months from parents, teachers and students alike. An access point was created from Glenfield Road, a new vehicular entrance leading to increased car park spaces, a drop off area, a turning area and a disabled car spaces.
The demolition mainly took place in a live school environment. The exisiting school remained operational throughout construction.

We would also like to extend our thanks and congratulations to O’Donnell & Tuomey Architects, garland Consulting Engineers, Heavy Kenny Consulting and Lawlor Byrnes whom we worked alongside on this project.
