My son currently attends St. Olaf´s and both him and us are very happy with the school. School principal is excellent and has achieved a lot for the school. As I´m sure you´ve noticed, they´re getting a new permanent extension done, so there´ll be no prefabs there any more. Social mix is OK, probably above the average for Dublin. The area is safe. If you need afterschool care, there´s a facility next-door, independent from school. My daughter went to a different primary school and I have to say that while she did excellent academically, we prefer this school to the school she went to. Hope this helps somewhat.

We went to visit this school this morning as my daughter has been offered a place there. we have places in a few schools and are getting more confused as we try to decide.
Anyone experience with this school? we are not from the area so it is so hard to decide.
Other schools on the table are St Raphaela´s and Thaobh Na Coimhle.
I think I would prefer mixed to all girls, for primary anyway....
