You will need to immediately directly contact the schools you are interested in for your children to enquire about places and their application procedure. The schools will require information on where you are/will be living to see if you will be in their catchment area. When talking with the schools you should also enquire about language support for your children - there have been many cutback in the Irish education system recently and not all schools have language supports in place.
It would also be a good idea to try and arrange english speaking classes for your children before they arrive in April which will help them greatly when starting school.
You will find contact details for primary schools on
