Our Facilities

We have amazing facilities here in Craughwell NS. We know how lucky we are and make great use of them.

The Craughwell Community Sports Group own and run the Astro-Turf pitch behind the school. It is a fabulous amenity for the school and community. It was completed in 2007 with great work from the community. We now have a 70m by 40m facility which is available to the school during the day and available to rent after school hours. It can be used as one large pitch length-wise or as two smaller pitches across the width of the ground.

Bookings can be made by calling 087-0643413.

The Craughwell Community Development Association opened a new playground in the summer of 2011. This is a wonderful development which the school uses during school break-times and is available to the community outside of these times. We are so grateful for the trojan work which brought this project to completion. It is a testament to the community spirit that makes us so proud of Craughwell.

We also have huge grounds in which we play at breaktimes. We have our own infant playground, two tarmac play courts and two pitches.




We also have a one-of-a-kind geodesic dome  which sits to the front of our school. This is a space-age greenhouse in which we have planted a wide variety of vegetables and flowers. This is all part of our work in being a Green School.
