The current principal , Brian MacMahon, has decided to retire at the end of this school year. Mr. MacMahon taught in the old CBS Primary for 42 years and was Principal of the CBS Primary for 16 years.
Having indicated his intention to retire , the Board of Management initiated a recruitment process and having interviewed seven prospective principals, they have now appointed Mr Gerry Moran to take over as principal on September 1st. Mr. Moran is a very experienced principal and has previously been a principal teacher in Camolin, in Rathnure and in Bree. He is extremely well qualified to lead our school into the future and staff and pupils are looking forward to welcoming him to the Edmund Rice School .
Mr. Mac Mahon will continue as principal up to the end of August when the formal handover takes place . In the interim, he will be working very closely with Mr. Moran to ensure that the handover runs smoothly and that the school continues to blossom and grow.
