Book ‘Celebrating 50 Years of St Colmcille’s BNS’ –  An ideal Christmas gift ! 

There are a limited number of copies of our book available. These can be purchased from the school office at a cost of €12. To place an order, please phone (01) 8405132 or email colmcilles@gmail.com. Please allow €3 postage within the Republic of Ireland & NI, or €5.50 for an address anywhere in the rest of the world. All proceeds go directly to the school.


The book is thematic in its layout. It opens with a brief history of the school and the changes and improvements to the buildings and grounds over the past 50 years. The next section includes interviews with past pupils from each of the five decades, as well as interviews with teachers from each of the five decades. The next section details the ancillary staff, student council and other groups within our school community. Then follows a comprehensive section covering the events and activities of the past 50 Years. The final section has class photographs featuring all of our pupils of 2016 and some of their views on our school.

This 80 page publication is filled with coloured photographs and is a fascinating read for anyone who has had an association with or interest in our school during its 50 Year history.
