Thank you for your commitment, care and leadership, for your courage and selfless sacrifice.

May you all be safe and well. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Le gach dea-ghuí,

Niall Brennan, Sarah Leonard, Maelíosa Fitzgerald, Mandy Kerroum, Dympna Claffey, Colleen Crowley, Catherine Daly, Aoife Fitzsimons, Rachel Keenan, Christine Loddick, Mary McLoughlin, Darina Price, Anne Marie Swarbrigg, Mary Coffey, Mary Kenny and Kathleen McGrenery.

#shineyourlight at Scoil Mhuire Loughegar 11th April 2020


Fáilte go suíomh idirlíon Scoil Mhuire, Loch an Gháir, Muileann Cearr, Co. na hÍarmhí. Welcome to Scoil Mhuire’s Website. We hope to give our pupils and parents a little bit of structure over the coming weeks while our school is closed due to the Covid-19 virus.

Our website has changed to allow children to access work given to them by their class teacher. Click on your class link to find out what to do. Each school day we will upload new items and we hope to cover all subjects during the week. There should be enough work for 1.5 to 2 hours per day. If it is taking longer, parents/guardians should use their own discretion to get the important bits done.
