Colaiste Chiarain,Croom





Coláiste Chiaráin, Croom, Co. Limerick is situated just twenty minutes from the heart of Limerick city. This coeducational post-primary college offers full-time education to boys and girls from first year to Leaving Certificate level, ranging in age from twelve to eighteen years. Currently one of the fastest growing post-primary schools in Ireland, the college has built up a national reputation in the delivery of a high quality and progressive educational programme, particularly with its emphasis on the sciences, languages, Information and Communication Technology and overall commitment to innovation, in all that it does. With the appointment of Mr. Noel Malone as Headmaster in 1999, Coláiste Chiaráin reoriented much of its educational provision towards providing an educational school community which is, at this point, unlike any other second level school in Ireland.

 In 2004, the Headmaster, Mr. Noel Malone was awarded the Dell Technology Award for Excellence in Education, the first recipient, outside of the United States of America. The present school building was built in 1987 and has become unsuitable for the level of expansion in student population currently taking place. As a result, the County Limerick VEC and the Department of Education and Science have made a significant commitment to a major new college building programme for Coláiste Chiaráin, on a green-field site. A substantial area of land in the general vicinity has been secured, to facilitate a brand new college campus, which promises to be one of the largest and best-equipped facilities in the city and county.  The current school population is over 800 students in the new academic year, 2007-2008.
