History of Colaiste Einde

Coláiste Éinde opened its doors for the first time on the 23rd October 1928, on its original site in Furbo, Connemara. In the Leaving Certificate class of that year there were 30 pupils, of whom 26 went on to St. Patrick’s Training College, Drumcondra, to become National School Teachers.

When, in 1937, the college moved to its present location on Threadneedle Road, it continued mainly as a preparatory college for students, aspiring to become National School Teachers. At that time it was a Boarding College, Irish-speaking and the all-male student population came from far and wide.

Many changes have happened since those early years. Coláiste Éinde became a day-school in 1986, when classes were conducted through english and the students, for the most part, came from the surrounding area. One of the many noteable developments occurred in 1991, whereby the college adopted a co-educational approach and the first female students were registered.

A college is part of a community…

Coláiste Éinde has played its part in this regard and has kept up to pace with the changing requirements of the community it serves. It continues to evolve to meet the needs of the local community. Coláiste Éinde is now a college of the 21st century. Consequently our students continue to make their mark on the future development of our nation, just as have so many of our pupils from previous years.
