Coláiste Muire’s Facilities

Coláiste Muire is a well equipped school, we have two Science Laboratories, Art Room, Music Room, Computer Room, Home Economics Kitchen, School Chapel, All-Weather Pitch, Basketball Court and Tennis Court. We also have access to the local Tourmakeady G.A.A. pitch for training sessions and Physical Education classes.

Thanks to funding provided by the Parent’s Council and grant aid from the Department of Education and Science, all rooms in Coláiste Muire are equipped with digital projectors. This development has placed Coláiste Muire on the modern stage of digital schools.
