Gaelscoil na mBeann & Naíscoil na mBeann
The gift of two languages for the children of Mourne.
Naíscoil was established in 2007 and the Gaelscoil in 2010 by a group of local parents who wanted Irish-medium education for their children. Our founders had a clear vision for the education they wanted for their children and the whole school community has worked enthusiastically to make their vision a reality. We gained official recognition and funding from the Department of Education in September 2012 and in September 2015 the Minister of Education announced capital viability for the Gaelscoil. Situated in the heart of Kilkeel, Naíscoil and Gaelscoil na mBeann will provide your child with an excellent education and through our Irish language immersion programme, a second language, the indigenous language of the Mourne community.
"We endeavour to help each child realise their full potential within a positive and caring learning environment.”
