Welcome to Scoil Naomh Eoin, Ballincurrig! We have a wonderful community here in Scoil Naomh Eoin where pupils, parents, staff, Parents’ Association and members of the Board of Management all work to create a positive and progressive learning environment.

Scoil Naomh Eoin is a mixed primary school. We are a school with a Catholic ethos, under the patronage of the Bishop of Cloyne and the auspices of the Department of Education and Skills, but we also have due recognition for all other religions.

Scoil Naomh Eoin is located in East Cork, in Lisgoold parish just a short distance from Midleton. We have a long history of providing an education to the children in the area. Established in 1846 we relocated to our present building in 1968, which gave us this wonderful educational space as well as a basketball court and hurling and football playing areas. The whole community joined us, September 2018, to celebrate our Fiftieth Anniversary in the present location.

See a welcome from our Principal here or have a look at our Contact Us if you would like to arrange an appointment to find out more about our school.
