Scoil Mhuire is a rural school situated in Loughegar, about 6 kilometres north of Mullingar, just off the Mullingar/Delvin road (N52).

It is a co-educational school with an enrolment of 210 pupils.

There are 8 mainstream teachers, 2 special education teachers and three special needs assistants and school secretary. Mr. Niall Brennan is the school principal.


Scoil Mhuire, Loughegar is a modern, purpose-built primary school. Building work on the eight-classroom school was completed in 2011.

It has spacious and well-lit classrooms. Scoil Mhuire has a modern sports hall, special education rooms, outdoor classroom along with large grass and tarmacadam play areas. All classrooms come equipped with interactive panels and interactive whiteboards along with iPads and laptops.

The catchment area for the school extends from Knockdrin and Rathconnell, just outside of Mullingar to Turin, close to Delvin and as far across as Cloghan on the roads leading to Killucan and The Downs. The original Loughegar National School (dating from 1871) is situated next to the school and has been used as a pre-school and after-school care facility for children in the locality.
