Hi carmel,
The short answer is probably right away if you can, though some primary schools won´t take a childs name until a year before they enter. It would be best to check with each school in your area and see when they will take names for registration. That being said, its important not to overlook putting their names down for secondary school also. Most secondary schools expect early registration sometimes years in advance. When our daughter was entering primary school, we put her name down for several secondary schools also. One school in particular said they couldn´t register her - we were too late!! Don´t wait around on this one. Good luck.

I am living in Dublin 15 and have a 17month old toddler. At what age should I start registering him for Primary school?
