About Us

We have 16 regular classes, 2 at each level ; 4 Learning Support Teachers for English and Maths ; 1 support teacher; 1 Home School Liaison Teacher and our Principal Ms Bryan.

Our school opening hours are from 8.55 a.m. to 2.35 p.m.

Junior & Senior Infants finish at 1.35 pm.

Children in our after school clubs also do Sports, Art & Craft, Computers and occasionally take field trips to Galleries and Exhibitions around Dublin.

Holy Spirit Boys and Girls School started on Monday 3rd July 1967 with 164 boys and 160 girls on the roll. Soon afterwards it was split into separate Boys and Girls Schools. At one stage there were around 1100 pupils enrolled. Past pupils of the school include the recent Oscar Winner Glen Hansard and Philip McMahon, corner back on the Dublin senior GAA Team as well as Davy Byrne the former goalkeeper on the Dublin Senior Gaelic Football Team.

Those of you familiar with the film "Into The West" and the Roddy Doyle inspired TV Mini Series "The Family" will already have seen plenty of scenes from our locality as both were shot on location in Ballymun
