“The school has been very proactive in Special Educational Provision. The new ASD unit has been open since November 2020 with Ms Gahan and Ms O’Byrne teaching classes along with the support of Louise, Amy and Dina

“I know from my own family’s experience the need for strong special education supports and I am delighted to see Tinhely National School’s ASD unit finally come to fruition.

“I always like coming to Tinahely National School. The school has a remarkable number of enterprising initiatives including the school garden, pupils making soups and juices in the school kitchen and selling left over produce at pop up shops.

“I would like to pay tribute to Ms Gallagher and all the team at Tinahely National School for the work they do and their commitment to inclusivity.”

Fr Raymond Gahan, PP blessed the building.
