The new campus will ensure that Gaelcholáiste Chiarraí’s students will, in the not too distant future, be moving into a new state of the art building. The new building is being built for 600 students and will feature 25 general classrooms, specialist classrooms, a library, multimedia labs, canteen and dining areas, a sports hall and the cultúrlann performance area. This will add greatly to the excellent standard of teaching and learning that currently exist and will afford students a broader curriculum and with further educational opportunities.

This school will serve the students of Tralee and its hinterland who wish to be educated through Irish in a modern campus focusing on 21st century teaching and learning.
