About Us
Barnane National School is a three teacher, rural school situated at the foot of The Devil’s Bit Mountain near Templemore in County Tipperary. The school has sixty seven pupils enrolled for 2014/2015. The school has a Catholic ethos and is under the patronage of Dermot Clifford, the Archbishop of Cashel and Emily. Barnane has a proud tradition of success in Gaelic sports such as hurling, football as well as fostering a love of Irish dancing and traditional Irish music amongst the pupils. Our School’s motto is Forward Together. Ar Aghaidh Le Cheile!

We are very interested in learning about our Local history and geography and every year the older classes go on nature trails and local history walks around our locality. Last year the senior classes climbed up to the top of the Devil`s Bit mountain and we studied the ruins of the old school in Barnane and the ruins of Barnane castle.
That is why were very pleased to meet Michael Fortune who works with  Heritage in School Scheme. He came to Barnane School for five days and we learned a lot more about our local customs and tradition. Michael helped us to put our work into a website and we think it looks great. We learned lots of new skills and visited lots of new websites eg www.osi.ie and www.nli.ie  and everyone enjoyed the experience of collecting information and putting the website together.stories and lots more. http://www.osi.ie/http://www.nli.ie/shapeimage_7_link_0shapeimage_7_link_1
