About Our School
Rylane National School is a mainstream co-educational school with classes from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. Set in the picturesque townland of Mountrivers in Rylane, our primary school is beautifully nestled in the green countryside with the magnificent Muskery mountains in view. Rylane National School is a Catholic Primary School in the Parish of Aghabullogue.

Our school comprises of 4 classrooms and 70 pupils. We have a teaching principal (Special Educational Needs Teacher), four mainstream class teachers, two Special Needs Assistant and one part-time Secretary.
Our school crest resembles our identity; heritage, learning, sport and community. Within Rylane National School, we strive to establish an environment where each child is given an opportunity to learn and grow, academically, physically, intellectually, spiritually, socially and emotionally. This is reflected in our school ethos where pupils of all ages and abilities are encouraged to reach their maximum potential in all curricular, spiritual and extra-curricular areas.
Our school motto ‘Chun Mhaitheas an Linbh’ or ‘For the Good of the Individual Child’ reflects the approach of inclusivity we instill in all aspects of school life in Rylane National School.
We have a large Reception Area, Four Classrooms, a Special Education Room, PE Room and Library.
We have lots of playground space here in Rylane National School. We are fortunate to have a large playing yard at the front of the school and another larger playing yard at the back of the school beside our school pitch.
Our PE hall is a great place to exercise during the winter months. Whole school performances, extra curricular activities and monthly assemblies take place here too.
We have a lovely polytunnel beside our school pitch that is full of flowers and vegetables that out Gardening Committee look after.
