Principal's Welcome


As Principal of Ballymurray N.S., I am very proud to introduce our school to you and invite you to browse our website. Here, you will learn about the special qualities that makes our school such a unique centre of learning.

Ballymurray N.S. is situated five minutes drive from Roscommon town in the parish of Knockcroghery. We cater for boys and girls from Junior Infants to Sixth class and currently have 100 pupils. As a relatively small school and community, we are lucky that our staff get to know all of the children so that children across the school are always dealing with an adult who knows them well. In addition, our size of school, allows children across all classes to get to know each other and feel part of a community. We believe that this creates a close and secure climate enabling our students to achieve success in their own path of learning and development.

At Ballymurray N.S., every child is part of a school where each individual is valued and supported and given every opportunity to advance in their holistic development. Our students are provided with rich opportunities to develop academically, socially and physically.

Please take time to explore our website and we hope it showcases the distinct character of our school. If you have any queries or would like to find out more about our school please feel free to contact us anytime and we would be more than happy to assist you in any way we can.
