Parents Association:

The Parents Association aims to work with the Principal, Staff and Board of Management to build cooperation between home and school and to promote the interests of the students in the school. It promotes the involvement of parents in the operation of the school in consultation with the Principal.

In Scoil Íosagáin we are very lucky to have an active and hard working Parents Association. They support us in organising fundraising activities for the school and in helping to organise and supervise extracurricular activities.
New members are always welcome. Contact us through the school office on 022 42766
