About Us

In September 2014, St. Joseph’s Primary School relocated to Creagh, and for the first time we welcomed girls and junior classes into the school. We now have boys and girls from junior infants right through to sixth class.

For the previous 55 years St. Joseph’s Primary School was an all boys school in the centre of Gorey town. The school was a senior boys’ primary school catering for boys from second through to sixth class.

The school was first established on the site in Gorey town in 1959 by the Christian Brothers, who had a history of providing education in the town since 1854. Since its first day St. Joseph’s has provided the boys who have passed through its gates with a rounded education and a myriad of happy memories. The school has enjoyed much success in the areas of sport, chess, quizzes and music.

Currently, there are more than 300 children enrolled in the school. The staff consists of our Principal, Pádraig Cronin; Deputy Principal, Anne-Marie Doyle; fifteen teachers, three special needs assistants, Geraldine, the school secretary; and Jackie, the caretaker.
