Welcome to Kilchreest National School

Welcome to the Webpage of Kilchreest National School. Our primary School is situated between Gort and Loughrea in South Galway. There are 86 students, both boys and girls, between the ages of 4 and 13 in the school.  We have 5 teachers in our school - Mr. O' Connor, Ms. Keely, Ms. Cusack, Ms. Kelly and Ms. Hayes. We have 4 mainstream class teachers and a learning support teacher.  Our school principal is Mr. O' Connor.  Our school was opened on the first of January 1981. It was established to replace two existing two-teacher schools in Castledaly and Kilchreest.  

Our uniform is navy and our school team colours are red and white. There is a strong tradition of sport in the school and the majority of children play hurling or camogie.  


The philosophy of the school reflects the values of the community the school serves. The school is under the patronage of the Bishop of Galway, and as most of the children are Catholics, the ethos reflects the teaching of the Catholic Church in accordance with the values of the gospel.
