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 was established in 1998 following the amalgamation of two long-established Drumgath Parish schools - St. Colman’s Primary, Barnmeen and Lurgancahone Primary School. Since then, our good reputation has blossomed and our school has developed strong links between the home, school, parish and community.

We are immensely proud of our warm, welcoming, inclusive, child- centred environment. We pride ourselves on the quality of our relationships and on the effectiveness of our Pastoral Care provision. As a Catholic school we are committed to providing experiences which will help children to develop the values, skills, knowledge and abilities that will enable them to develop academically, physically, socially and emotionally.

I do hope you find our website interesting and informative. Should you require further information about our school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Nessa Magee
