Griffith Barracks Multi-Denominational School
In June 1993, parents and supporters formed a campaign group to open a school for Crumlin and adjacent districts. This would be a co-educational school open to children of all religions, as well as children without religious persuasion, using child-centred methods and curriculum, and democratically run by teachers, parents and supporters. The school would be a Department of Education recognised national school, enabling the school to afford professional teachers, and making the school accessible to all children, regardless of social circumstances. By July 1994, a temporary home was found at Old Kilmainham and converted by the hard work of parents and supporters. In 1996 the school moved to larger premises at Inchicore, until July 1997. The school then spent 6 months at School Street (thanks to St. Catherine's R.C. Parish). After lengthy campaigns, the school found a permanent home at the Griffith Barracks, on Dublin’s South Circular Road. It was officially opened by President Mary McAleese in April 1998.
