St. Patrick’s Secondary School – Coláiste an Oileáin
Coláiste an Oileáin, St. Patrick’s Secondary School for boys was opened in the Carnegie Library, Castleisland in September 1939 by Seán Prendiville. This continued until 1945 when Timothy Kerrisk took over and it remained in the library until 1962 when it moved to the old boy’s national school in college road, its current location. Timothy Kerrisk continued the school until 1986 when it was taken over by Dan O’Connor who continued the school until June 2012. The school is now under the management of school Principal Denis O’Donovan who will carry on this great legacy and tradition of post primary education and who will promote and develop the school into the future.
