Hi I can´t comment on Presentation Terenure as I have all boys but St Colmcilles is a great school all round. I have one boy who has just left and in Uni and another in 2nd year. Teaching standard is v good with the odd exception. Perhaps sports isn´t as strong as Presentation but my guys did extra curricular games so that wasn´t a major concern. For me the transition year was excellent for my eldest and and helped round him out. I have to say having attended all boys education myself I much prefer the healthy atmosphere integrated\\mixed student environment. Of course the convenience for school drop offs etc was\\is a very nice bonus too!

my daughter has been offered a place in both schools. Does anyone have any recommendations, Colmcilles is closer but high numbers is putting me off, however both schools seem to have good reputations. As daughter 1st I´ve no knowledge of schools. Any advice or comments on both schools would be much appreciated.
