Le Micheál Ó Ciardubháin

Is Scoil Lán Gaeilge é Gaelscoil Aogáin a cabhráionn le paistí Gaeilge a labhairt ó aois óg.

Founded in 1987, Gaelscoil Aogáin has been going from strength to strength ever since. We are a proud Gaelscoil that takes pride in all aspects of a child’s school life from academics and sports to cultural and extra-curricular events.


Irish is our heritage and our native language and we are very proud of that in our school.

We foster a positive atmosphere to promote the learning of a language. We aim to have our children leaving the school as proficient speakers offering them a huge advantage over their peers when it comes to secondary school.

Irish for Parents in September

By immersing yourself in Irish everyday at school you can learn a language without having Irish at home so you don’t need Irish to be able to speak Irish to send your children to a Gaelscoil!

There will also be Irish language lessons for parents starting in September for anyone interested.


In 2018 we completed an all weather pitch in the school which allows the children to be outside and active on most days. We also have two basketball courts and a jungle gym so the children of all ages are active.

We take part in and promote sports such as athletics, basketball, rugby, football, and camogie through arranging extra-curricular coaches to come to the school.

Active and Healthy

As a school we take part in many primary school competitions such as the Castleisland Basketball Blitz, Cumann na mBunscoil and other competitions. We place an emphasis on being active and healthy in all aspects of life.

Naíonra/playschool and Afterschool

The Naíonra/playschool attached to the school is an excellent preschool and after school running from 8am-6pm. With highly trained staff and a fully operational kitchen offering meals to students the Naíonra is an essential part of our school.

With dinners and homework supervision the Naíonra offers a lot to working families. The Naíonra also runs excellent summer and Easter camps for children of all ages.
