St. Martins National School

Saint Martin's National School is located in the village of Brittas, on the R114, just off the N81.


It is a Catholic Co-Educational Primary School, under the auspices of the Archbishop of the Dublin Diocese. It is in the unusual position of being a Dublin school in a rural setting. It has students from the Brittas area, plus from Saggart, Citywest, Rathcoole, Blessington, Manor Kilbride and Tallaght. At present they have 5 class teachers, plus a Learning Support and a Resource Teacher, providing education to boys and girls, aged 4 to 13, from Junior Infants to 6th class.



The school was established in 1959 and has been an integral part of the Brittas community every since. As well as delivering a varied school curriculum, they have a very active calendar which ensures the children get a well rounded education. This includes gaelic football, hurling, rugby, soccer, hockey, basketball, swimming, chess, traditional musical instruments and a knitting club.


The school endeavours to create an atmosphere in which the children fulfil their full potential. They achieve this by creating a safe, happy and caring school environment.


There is also a very active 'Parent's Association' in the school which helps raise much needed additional funds for the school.


The school Principal is Mr Cormac O'Farrell.
