We are moving to Dublin end of Jan 09 from Australia, with 2 primary school aged boys. Don´t really know Dublin & at this stage looking at Malahide/Sutton/Blackrock areas but all dependent on getting into schools - particularly interested in hearing about schools in these areas (or even other areas) that cater for gifted / talented children. One of our children has been assessed as gifted and has been lucky enough to have an independent learning program at his local school here. However, looks like getting into a school in Dublin is a bit a nightmare process as it is and am really worried whole move will fall through on the schooling issue!
