Scoil Mhichíl was formed in September 2013 with the amalgamation of Clonigulane N.S and Cahermurphy N.S. It is a four teacher rural school of three classroom teachers and one learning support teacher, catering for children from junior infants to sixth class. It is situated two miles from the village of Kilmihil.


In common with all schools, the teachers cater to the individual needs of their pupils and work with very supportive parents who value the individual attention, the emphasis on being ‘the best you can be’, and the unique atmosphere created by the school community, which ensures that all who attend or visit the school are influenced positively by the experience. The school motto is  ‘Fás agus Foghlaim’ – growing and learning together.  The smaller class size enables catering for the individual needs of the child giving the opportunity for personal attention for each child. The school has the advantage of having fifteen hours Learning Support.   The website will be found at
