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.

The original school building dates back to 1914 and huge celebrations were held in the school in 2014 to mark its centenary.

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.
