Cahir NS: A proud new chapter in the history of education for Cahir, County Tipperary


The completion of the amalgamation between Our Lady of Mercy Primary School and Cahir Boys National School marks a new chapter in the history of education in the local community. More than two decades in the making, and less than two years after breaking ground, this brand-new state-of-the-art building is finally home to hundreds of happy children, teachers, and staff.

The project involved extensive planning, fundraising, and hard work from all involved. It is a testament to the perseverance and dedication of the community that this dream has finally become a reality. The local media has been closely following the progress of the project, and the excitement among the community has been palpable. One of the most notable features of the new school is its stunning design. The 3,556 square meter building houses sixteen classrooms, two special needs units, a general purpose hall, and additional accommodation. The classrooms are spacious, bright, and equipped with the latest technology to facilitate learning. The special needs units are specifically designed to meet the needs of students with disabilities, providing them with a safe and supportive environment to learn and grow.

In addition to the classrooms, the school boasts new playing courts and sporting facilities. The old facilities were demolished in Phase 2 of the project to make way for new, modernised amenities. The new playing courts provide students with ample space to engage in a variety of physical activities, while the sporting facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to facilitate training and competition. The external works of the project were just as impressive as the internal features. Extensive landscaping was carried out to beautify the school grounds, creating a welcoming and pleasant environment for the students. The parking facilities were expanded to accommodate the increased number of visitors to the school, while the creation of pedestrian and vehicular access ensures that students can travel to and from the school safely.

The completion of the project was made possible by the dedication and hard work of the Townmore site team. The team, led by Seamus Quirke, Morgan Fox, Denis Murphy, Mark Dunne, Aoife O’Riordan, and Jonathan O’Gorman, worked tirelessly to ensure that the project was completed on time and to the highest possible standards. bThe benefits of this new school are numerous and far-reaching. The students now have access to modern, state-of-the-art facilities that will facilitate their learning and development. The teachers and staff have access to the latest technology and resources to facilitate their teaching, while the wider community benefits from the creation of a welcoming and inclusive educational environment.

Overall, the completion of this project is a testament to the power of community, perseverance, and hard work. It will have a positive impact on the lives of generations of students to come, and the Townmore team can be justifiably proud of their role in making this dream a reality.
