The Múinteoir i bhFeighil is Siobhán Ní Chonchuir.


Gaelcholáiste Uí Chonbá is an aonad lán Ghaeilge, attached to Desmond College under the auspices of Limerick & Clare ETB. It provides education through the medium of Irish. Gaelcholaiste was founded in 1985. The school has a proud tradition of excellence with almost 100% of students each year taking Level 8 degree courses at Universities and Colleges.

While we are fortunate to have an outstanding Gaelscoil in the locality, it is not essential that students have studied their primary education through Irish, as there are many excellent primary schools in the area where Irish is taught to a very high standard.

Gaelcholáiste Uí Chonbá will suit the student who has an interest in Irish language, who has a flair for all modern languages and who is interested in maximising their Leaving Certificate points (due to the bonus points allocated for taking State Exams through the medium of Irish).


Is ionad lán Gaeilge é Gaelcholáiste Uí Chonbá atá mar chuid Choláiste Deasmumhan faoi choimirce Bhord Traenála agus Oideachais Luimní agus an Chláir. Bunaíodh an Gaelcholáiste 1993. Tá traidisiún bròdúil ag an gcoláiste maidir le caighdeá oiliúna. Éiríonn le beagnach 100% de dhaltaí cúrsaí Ollscoile a bhaint amach ag leibhéal 8 gach bliain.

Cé go bhfuil an t-ádh linn go bhfuil Gaelscoil den scoth again cheantar áítiúil níl sé riachtanach go mbeadh na daltaí tae éis gcuid bunoideachais a dhéanamh trí Ghaeilge de bharr go bhf chuid bunscoileanna den scoth sa cheantar ina múintear Gaei chaighdeán ard.

Beidh Gaelcholáiste Uí Chonbá oiriúnach do dhalta a bhfuil suim aige i dteanga na Gaeilge, agus do dhalta bhfuil luí aige i.

The recipe for success in Gaelcholáiste Uí Chonbá is individual attention, small classes, a caring family atmosphere and dedicated staff. Gaelcholáiste Uí Chonbá certainly encompasses all of these things. The result is a rewarding and successful bi-lingual educational environment in which all students develop and prosper.

The school has a very broad curriculum base catering for the individual needs of each student. It caters for languages, business, science, art and practical subjects, as well as extra curricular activities encompassing football, hurling, basketball, soccer, camogie, athletics, debating, young enterprise competition, fish cookery competition, and many more too numerous to mention.


The advantages of bilingualism:

1. International research shows that being bilingual helps intellectual and cognitive development.

2. Students who are bilingual can often have enhanced self esteem.

3. Students who speak Irish understand their own cultural identity as Irish citizens and as Europeans. There is a better chance that they will understand and respect people of other races and cultures who speak different languages.

4. Being bilingual will help the student learn a third and fourth language.

5. Being bilingual means that there are enhanced employment prospects for students.
