Hi,

We are a Spanish family with two daughters (4 & 7 y.o.) that is waiting final confirmation to settle in Dublin for one academic year starting end next September (the mother will do some research at a public institution) .
We would like to take our daughters to a public state school within Dublin. We know that this depends mostly in where you live, which is another problem since we are still looking for hous¡ng.
How could we manage to advance in school selection? Can we do something without having already an address? Do we have to contact directly potential schools or better the local council? We have become aware that schools close end of current month but wondder if they may be opened some days during July for administrative issues (we are plannning a short visit first week of july for arranging housing and schooling issues).
Any hint will be greatly appreciated!
