Fáilte romhaibh chuig ár suiomh idirlion- You are very welcome to the website of O'Connell Primary School. Our school is located in Dublins North East Inner City in the shadow of Irelands most famous stadium Croke Park. Our school dates back nearly 200 years to 1828 when Blessed Edmund Rice founded our school to cater for the boys in Dublins Inner city and it is named after Daniel O'Connell who championed catholic emancipation in the 1800s.

O'Connell Primary caters for boys from 2nd class to 6th class. We have ten mainstream classes and we also have 2 special classes catering for boys with ASD. Our approach to education is all about helping the children learn and grow in a quality child centred educational environment.

We aim to enable our boys to develop academically, physically, socially, spiritually and artistically to their fullest potential. We provide a top quality, child centred and very active educational programme for all in our care. O'Connell Primary is a happy, friendly and fun filled school where we work in close partnership with our parents and our amazing local community. Please read on to find out more about our great school.

Mr. Mickey McHugh Principal


The Qube

On Thursday June 13th 2024 we are hosting a fundraising event 'The Qube' in the Handball Alley at 8pm. We are trying to raise funds to develop a sensory garden for the pupils in our school. A sensory garden can support pupils in many ways but in particular it supports their mental wellbeing, will nurture their self-esteem, while also encouraging creativity, social skills and self-confidence. 

There will be a kids Qube taking place during school on Wednesday the 12th of June where the children can practice their skills and try to beat the cube before the adults main even on Thursday.

If you would like to support our fundraiser your business can buy advertising packages or you can make a donation here.
