This new 16 classroom school comes from the decision to amalgamate two of the national schools, St. Johns Boys School and St. Josephs Girls School, within the Kinsale Town Boundary. The school will be renamed as Scoil Naomh Eltin. The existing site houses St. John’s Boy’s National School and this development necessitates the demolition of this single 834m2 storey school building.
The building design is a two storey 2,366m2 school consisting of 16 classrooms, a general purpose hall, library, support accommodation and all ancillary works; 2 new vehicular and pedestrian entrances from Rose Abbey Park, 26 on-site car park spaces, set-down areas, pedestrian and cycle pathways, 2 ball courts, play areas, bin store, bicycle shelter, signage and landscaping as part of the overall site development works on a site area of 0.85ha.
