October 20th 2017 update

We are thrilled to see Dún an Rí opening this morning to their pupils who have been in temporary accommodation for the past year. We would like to wish all staff and students the best of luck in the new building. Over 160 pupils moved into Dún an Rí College this morning.

The new secondary school is situated at Turners Hill in the town and the state of the art facility will cater for up to 500 pupils.



Week 28 of the Coláiste Dún an Rí college build, the design of the new college is starting to take shape, exciting times ahead for all the students in 2017.

This is the main pedestrian walkway linking the Main Street in Kingscourt to the school grounds.  The stairs are approximately 34m in overall length and 3.2m in overall width. We have cast recesses in the sides of the stairs for the hand rails. We have also cast recesses in the top of each step for a magna strip to be installed by Ganson. The magna strip is a non – slip piece of material added to the flight by the Ganson. We have provided a precast Beam at each landing level for supporting the stair flight and one side of the landing slab.
