our school


Scoil Mhólinge Listerlin is a Primary School under the patronage of the Bishop of Ossory. We are situated in the Parish of Rosbercon half way between Mullinavat and New Ross on the R704 National Primary Route.

The school takes its name from St Moling, the seventh century saint who had his hermitage at Mullinakill about five kilometers from the school.

The school has 122 pupils (Boys and girls) from four to thirteen years of age. We draw our pupils from the predominantly rural western side of the Parish. We have 5 classroom Teachers and a Learning Resource Teacher

Our motto is “Go raibh sonas ar ár nDaltaí” (That our children may be happy)

We try to foster an enjoyable learning environment which places the young child at the centre of all school activities and decisions.

The school grounds are spacious with two playing pitches, a hard playing surface and our hurling wall which proves popular with both boys and girls from all classes. Pupils also maintain a small garden in the school grounds.

The school has updated its general purpose room to incorporate a removable stage and seating for almost 150 adults. This fine space is used for PE by all pupils.

Our Mission Statement

“It is our aim to give firm grounding in the core subjects, while striving to provide a wider range of learning experiences, aimed at nurturing the aesthetic, creative and physical faculties of the child.”
