Coláiste Ghlór na Mara is pleased to announce the new online registration service.

Gaelcholáiste to open 2014
A founding committee was established in 2008 with the one aim – to open a Gaelcholáiste that would cater for pupils in North County Dublin, East County Meath and South County Louth.
As the result of a very vigorous campaign the Department of Education and Skills has decided to open a Gaelcholáiste on a site it has already purchased in Balbriggan for September 2014.
Foras Pátrúnachta na Scoileanna LánGhaeilge Teo along with the founding committee are submitting an application for patronage of this Gaelcholáiste. At this stage it appears that this Gaelcholáiste will be under the patronage of An Foras Pátrúnachta and that Coláiste Ghlór na Mara will open its doors to first year students in September 2014. This will be confirmed during the spring of 2012.
A submission for Coláiste Ghlór na Mara was put before the Department of Education and Skills in September 2010 and now following on from that an official application for patronage of the school must be made. Part of this application requires the gathering of details for possible future students of the school e.g. Name, address, date of birth etc. As a result of this the founding committee have prepared a new registration form (link below) which has all of the details now required by the department. Even if you have filled in a previous registration form we would ask you to please fill in this form again now as some of the previous forms didn’t have all of the details now required by the department.
