Scoil Náisiunta Derarca


Opened in 19** this custom built primary school serves the entire island and replaced three (2 roomed) schools located in Knightstown, Corahabeg & Ballyhearney. Having one central school allowed island children to mix from an early age, as one must remember although the island is small one may have not known someone schooled at the opposite end of the island until they went to Secondary School in Cahersiveen!

Today the mixed school has 66 pupils with four full time teachers (including special needs education).
