Dear local resident/homeowner,

The low population base of the school catchment area of Maam and Recess means that the number of families with school aged children is limited. While there have been ups and downs in the past with regard to school numbers, the current situation is a real cause for concern and requires a whole of community response to protect the future of the school.

This is one of the biggest challenges we face as a community, one which we must address together to protect the future of SN Tír na Cille. .

To this end, a new initiative is being planned to promote enrollment to Scoil Bhríde, Tír Na Cille. A key part of the initiative is to promote the area as a place to live for families with school aged children and to appoint a community liaison person who will assist any interested families who would like to move. An information pack for families interested in moving to the area is being put together. The pack will contain information on the school, local amenities and facilities, as well information on buying or renting a property.
