We are delighted to announce that works have commenced on the construction a new 14 classroom primary school for Scoil an Arthar an Tadgh Carrignavar. The long awaited new building will replace the existing school which has served the local community since 1974.

During the sod turning event, a representative group of pupils were delighted to be present to assist on what was a historic day for the community and parish of Carrignavar.
