School coat - there is a new school coat available, but either the new or the old coats can be worn.

All uniform items are available from Gibtex in Tullyallen (041) 9836701.

I am pleased to let you know that we have a new high quality canteen service in the school this year. Students will be supplied with the following:

Breakfast from 8am free of charge.

Packed lunch at 10.50 am free of charge (wrap/roll or sandwich, fruit and healthy treat)

Students will be given a free refillable water bottle - cool filtered water is available in the school canteen. We ask that students take care of their bottles as the school has funds for only one bottle each.

There will be no sugary drinks, crisps etc. available for sale in school.

Students will be given access to an online App on which to order their choice of sandwich, wrap, or roll. Each week students can use the App to order their food for the week ahead. The students will be shown how to use the App.

The Scoil Uí Mhuirí sports day was a great success despite limited playing area. Hopefully this time next year we will have more space for more activities.


The LMETB has updated documents in light of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)


Congratulations to our 6th year students on their Graduation ceremony yesterday. 


On Wednesday 2nd May, Scoil Ui Mhuiri had the honour of a visit from the German Ambassador to Ireland Deike Potzel. The event coincides with the 25th anniversary of teaching and learning German in Scoil Ui Mhuiri, during which time the school has won the European Language label for German, organised numerous German language trips and exchanges and welcomed several native German language assistants. 




Ambassador Potzel was greeted by a guard of honour given by German students, before a performance by the school choir. 5th Year student Yele Taylor gave an excellent speech about her experience of learning German, while 2nd Year German student Emma presented the ambassador with flowers. Ambassador Potzel gifted a set of German language books for the school’s new library. Following a discussion with German teachers and the school Principal on the importance of learning German in secondary schools, Ambassador Potzel gave a talk to Junior and Senior students of German about her work as an ambassador and the many career opportunities which exist for learners of German.

Happy New Year everyone!

Our last school event of 2014 was the annual Santa Run in aid of St. Vincent de Paul.  Well done to all students and teachers who participated and especially to Mr. Donagh on a very fine PB over the 1 mile distance.
