St. Cronan’s N.S. situated in the heart of Roscrea is a co-educational and multi-denominational mainstream Primary School. Opened in 1974, the school has been refurbished over the past number of years and new all weather playgrounds were added in 2009. We cater for pupils from a wide catchment from Shinrone to Knock, Clonakenny to Dromakeenan.

The classrooms are modern, bright and spacious with dedicated Resource and Learning Support Rooms added in 2010. The school was completely refurbished in 2019. All are equipped with 21st century teaching facilities including interactive white boards in all classrooms to support the teaching staff in providing the best opportunities for their pupils.

It is a two teacher school with 26 pupils on roll. Classes are small – A great start as each child’s individual needs are quickly identified.
