Scoil Cholmcille, Cill Mhic nÉanáin
Kilmacrennan National School is a modern purpose built eight classroom school building. It was first opened on 31st March 2008, replacing ‘The Old School’ located across the road from the present site. The facilities are impressive and include a gymnasium, computer suite and library, as well as interactive whiteboards in all classrooms. The 2010-11 school year saw the completion of our Sports Field Development. This magnificent facility includes an Athletics track, an Astro turf pitch, a long jump area and a grassed playing area.
