Overview and History of Scoil Uí Mhuirí

Scoil Uí Mhuirí is a vibrant, dynamic, multi denominational Post Primary school situated in the heart of the growing community of Dunleer, Co. Louth. The school has grown and developed since its opening in 1954 when 55 pupils were enrolled. Today there is a student cohort of 550 with a teaching staff of 45. 

The first major development for the school occurred in 1994 with the building of a new extension to the original school. In September 2006, students were finally able to take their seats in a new €5m extension which created a brand new state of the art school environment. 

In August 2011, there was great excitement in the school as the latest expansion to the school’s accommodation facilities threw open its doors to teachers and students. The latest wing has been kitted out to the highest of standards and includes two general classrooms, a new Technology room and a new Art/Drawing room. 

The Department of Education and Skills has since sanctioned the construction of yet another multi-million euro extension at the school. The permanent extension will be of a similar size to the existing school building which will mean an effective doubling of the building infrastructure at the school. The new extension is currently at building stage and it is envisaged that the school will be in a position to accommodate 600 students by September 2019. This is an exciting time for Scoil Uí Mhuirí as it embarks on this latest phase of its development. This further extension to the school is an indication of the rapid growth the school experienced in recent years.

The school proudly serves the areas of Annagassan, Clogherhead, Fieldstown, Walshetown, Tenure, Philipstown, Dromin, Kilsaran, Togher and the growing region of Dunleer itself. Having forged strong ties with the local community and industry, Scoil Uí Mhuirí is today rightfully regarded as a leading light of education in the North East region.
