Set in the heart if the Midlands, Offaly’s county town of Tullamore provides the base for ministry serving the parish churches of Tyrrellspass, Clara, Tullamore, and the ancient Christian monastic site and parish of Rahan. There are three centres of worship in regular use, St Catherine’s, Tullamore, St. Brigid’s, Clara, and St Sinian’s, Tyrrellspass.
As part of the wider Church family we seek to support and encourage one another in our Christian journey through Sunday worship and private prayer. Our fellowship is also strengthened by a programme of social activities throughout the year. Within the life and worship of the Church, there is a great emphasis placed on the family, with close contact and co -operation between the parish and our church school.
We welcome all to worship God with us, whether from the churches of the Anglican Communion or from different faith traditions. We like to think that our church buildings are places of hospitality and peace where, as a church family we are seeking to make friendships with God and each other in a spirit of thanksgiving, service and love.
Charleville National School, Church View, Tullamore
In 2006 pupils and staff relocated from the old school building on Henry Street to a brand new, purpose built Charleville National SChool at Church View, Tullamore.
The Bishop of Meath & Kildare is the Patron, and the school upholds a Church of Ireland ethos. However, pupils from various faith traditions are presently enrolled.
Our school provides an environment in which every child is cared for and valued. We pride ourselves on the attention each child receives, and the happy family environment in which they are encouraged to develop to their full potential.
Parents wishing to make enquiries regarding enrolment in the school can contact the School Principal – Tel: 057 9341581
