St Patrick's Primary School, Rathfriland, Newry


On behalf of the staff, pupils and Governors of St Patrick's Primary School, Drumgreenagh I would like to welcome you to our school website. 

Our school, St Patrick's P.S., was established in 1998 following the amalgamation of two long-established Drumgath Parish schools - St. Colman’s Primary, Barnmeen and Lurgancahone Primary School- and since then our school has flourished and developed an excellent reputation.

We are immensely proud of our warm, loving, welcoming, inclusive, child-centred environment. We take pride in our strong links to our parents, our parish and the wider community.  As a Catholic School we seek to foster and promote Christian spirituality and maintain the highest Christian values. Working in partnership with parents/ carers, we aim to support the development of each child's whole personality and talents.  We aim to provide a wide range of experiences for our pupils so that they develop the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that will enable them to develop academically, physically, socially and emotionally. 

I hope you find our website interesting and informative. It does, of course, only provide an snapshot of life in our school so if you require further information or you would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Nessa Magee
