School Opening……..Exciting Times Ahead
We are delighted to announce that Mungret Community College opened to our First Year Students on the 29th of August at 9am.

As can be seen in the photograph above our students were looking their best in their new uniforms. These are very exciting times for our students, their families, our dedicated staff, our interim board of management, LCETB and the local community.
On welcoming the opening of Mungret Community College Cllr. Daniel Butler (Chairperson of the Interim Board) said ‘I would like to acknowledge the great commitment of the board of management to get us to this point. In particular I would like to pay tribute to the diligence of school Principal Liam O’Mahoney ably assisted by Deputy Principal Helen Ryan in delivering a school ready to open within a tight deadline. The education of our community’s children is in great hands.’
Our Board has worked tirelessly over the last six months to ensure that our campus was ready to open on time. We thank each member of the board for their hard work, positive attitude and dedication which has been crucial to the schools development.
We would like to wish our dedicated staff many years of happiness and success in our school and thank them for the efforts they have put into the school prior to its opening. To our incoming students we hope that their expectations and dreams can be realised in a warm, caring, safe and happy environment.
