About Us

Scoil Cholmcille is a medium sized primary school and is situated in the village of Newtowncunningham, Co Donegal. The village itself lies almost midway between Derry City and Letterkenny.

The religious denomination of the Scoil Cholmcille is Catholic with strong emphasis on Christian values and attitudes.  The Bishop of Raphoe, Alan McGuckian, is the Patron. However, children of all faiths, and none, are very welcome to attend our school.
