Coláiste Ailigh

Mission Statement: In active partnership with the whole community the Coláiste is committed to offering high-quality education through the medium of Irish. The school promotes respect for the cultivation of Gaelic culture in the school community and believes in balance, the value of the person and in the spirit of the mind, personality, spirituality, morality and the development and inspiration of the child.

Coláiste Ailigh opened in September 2000 in Sprackburn House in Letterkenny, becoming the Donegal ETB’s third All-Irish School. The school caters not only for pupils from the Letterkenny area, but also has pupils enrolled from Fanad, Carrigart, Downings, Creeslough, Termon and Strabane.

In November 2013 the school took a giant leap forward on Coláiste Ailigh’s journey when they moved into a new school building in Knocknamona, the first school under Donegal ETB’s remit to be built under the Public Private Partnership scheme. The Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD performed the official opening of the school in 2014.

Coláiste Ailigh meets the needs of the local community by offering the following range of programmes through the medium of the Irish language:

Programmes available

  • Junior Certificate (JC)
  • Transition Year (TY)
  • Leaving Certificate (LC)
  • Leaving Certificate Vocational programme (LCVP)
