Welcome to Coláiste Dún an Rí's website.
This year is a historic year for Kingscourt with the opening of Coláiste Dún an Rí as the town’s second level school. Coláiste Dún an Rí is a co-educational, all-ability school catering for students from Kingscourt and its hinterland.
The establishment of the school is a culmination of a decades long campaign and is a credit to the hard work of local individuals and the leadership of Mr Martin G. O’Brien, Chief Executive of Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board.
The school will be initially located in a specially designated, fully equiped building to the rear of Kingscourt Community Centre. Construction has already begun on the new school building which has a total area of 6000 sq m. The new school which will be accessible from the Shercock road will have a capacity for 500 students and will be completed for September 2017.
I would like to thank all parents and students for their support to date and over the coming months and years we will work together to establish Coláiste Dún an Rí as a centre of educational excellence where students develop their learning abilities in a secure and engaging environment.
