Building Project

The management of Clonkeen College is delighted to announce that work is due to commence on the school’s major building project on the 22nd of June 2015. This multi-million euro refurbishment and extension is due for completion by autumn 2016.As a consequence of this construction work, anyone who intends to visit the college over the summer is advised that the school will only be accessible to authorised building personnel during this time. However, the college will be open to students and parents on the 12th of August for the issuing of the Leaving Certificate results. The college will also be open on the 17th and 18th of August for registration. The college will reopen as normal on the 26th of August.For urgent matters or emergencies please contact us at urgent@clonkeencollege.ie

We look forward to meeting with our parents at the start of the new school year to give a full update on the building project which we anticipate will be completed for our 50th anniversary celebrations in 2017.
