Welcome to Emly National School's website.

We would like to welcome back all students especially our new junior infants and the O' Neill family who joined us this year. The school looks a little different this year with an extended infant room, the implementation of the sensory equipment in the new room and the official opening of the new extention. It's lovely to see these rooms busy with activity. 

We would also like to welcome back Mr O' Halloran this year as our resource teacher.
