School History

Gaelscoil na gCeithre Maol was established by an enthusiastic group of people, who had an interest in our culture and in educating children through the medium of Irish.
Gaelscoil na gCeithre Maol is a co-educational Irish-medium primary school located in Ballina, Co. Mayo. Officially opened in September 1998, it currently has 122 pupils.

The school is continually improving and we currently have numerous classrooms, 2 learning support  rooms, a school library and a computer room. There is a large play area outside of the school, a pitch and a sports hall.
