Principal’s Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your child to our school’s website. I hope that it will give you some insight into the busy life of our new and rapidly growing school.

Coláiste Mhuirlinne/ Merlin College is a multi- faith, co- educational school under the patronage of Galway and Roscommon Education and Training Board (GRETB) and is situated to the east of Galway City.

Our learning environment is based on tolerance and respect, commitment to hard work and endeavouring to develop the talents of every child. Creating an enjoyable setting for your child as stated in our Mission Statement is paramount to everything we do.

Coláiste Mhuirlinne/ Merlin College looks forward to welcoming your child on their academic journey through second level. ‘Achieve, Create, Become,’ is our school motto and hopefully sums up what our hopes are for your child while they attend Coláiste Mhuirlinne which is that they can achieve whatever they desire in life, create their own path and become their true authentic self.

Let’s make this happen. Together.

Mr. John Cleary,


Coláiste Mhuirlinne/ Merlin College.
