Scoil Naomh Fiachra

About Us

Scoil Naomh Fiachra is a small rural primary school in the parish of Lisdowney, in the north of Co. Kilkenny, Ireland.
We have 65 pupils and four teachers.
Although the school was renamed ‘Scoil Naomh Fiachra‘ several years ago the official name of the school is still Clontubrid Mixed N.S.
The school caters for pupils from four to twelve years old.
The theme of our website is “The Connected Community”.
We want it to be a point of contact for pupils, teachers, parents, the local community, local people abroad and the broader learning community.
