As Principal I am very proud of the friendly and supportive environment that we have created here in St. Patrick’s National School. 

We see examples everyday of confident, kind and imaginative children working well together within their school and local community. 


Each child is valued and encouraged by our team to explore and develop their own personal and academic skills. 

Heather Jordan

Deputy Principal & Head of AEN

Welcome to our school. St Patrick’s is a happy, vibrant place with the wellbeing of the child at the heart of what we do.

I hope that you will get a sense of this as you peruse this website and see some of the many activities and interesting learning experiences that are planned and are underway.

We look forward to sharing these with you.

AP2 & 6th Class Ash 

My name is Sorcha Ryan and I'm the class teacher in 6th class Ash. Along with this I am a member of the senior management team. My area of responsibility is STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. I co-ordinate the participation of classes in Maths and Science events and initiatives. We also receive an award annually from the Science Foundation Ireland in recognition of all the STEM activities that take place in the school. At school level I promote the engagement and enjoyment of STEM subjects through theme weeks such as Science week, Space week and Maths week. I am also responsible for ensuring we have lots of up to date and engaging resources for the subjects of STEM.

Our Teachers

Teaching is a delicate balance of skill, intuition, careful planning and empathy. It requires patient, smart and qualified people to do it well, we can say with absolute conviction that our team of teachers is unmatched. Simply put, our teachers love teaching. It's incredibly rewarding for them when our students succeed. We want our students to have a great time learning with us so we make sure to select teachers who are friendly, engaging and kind.
