Welcome to Carrick-on-Shannon Community School

The school was established in 1994 with the aim of providing a comprehensive post-primary education to all children of the community regardless of intellectual ability, religious background or family means. The building and its extensive grounds are located in Summerhill, just off the N4’s southern approach to the town.

Best of luck to all students receiving their results on that day.

'Use Your Brain Not Your Fists' Film Launch

We were privileged to attend the launch of the Use Your Brain Not Your Fists film in The Bush Hotel on the 27th April 2018.

The short film, by Leitrim Comhairle na nÓg, highlights the devastating consequences that can occur when a person uses their fists instead of their brains in a conflict situation. The film is dedicated to Shane Grogan and to the memory of Andrew Dolan. Both Andrew and Shane were victims of seperate unprovoked assaults while enjoying time out with their friends. Andrew died as a result of the assault while Shane was left with brain injuries. Both Shane's and Andrew's parents attended the launch and shared their personal stories with us.

Please click on the link to watch the video and remind everyone to Use Your Brain Not Your Fists.
