Coláiste Muire (Realt na Mara) – Our Lady Star of the Sea was opened in 1947. When the school opened there were approximately one hundred students attending, taught by seven Presentation sisters and one lay person.
Today there are three hundred and fifty students in the school, and thirty teachers. Coláiste Muire was an all girls school until 1969, when 18 boys started here. Prior to this, boys of the locality had to travel to Cork city to receive a second level education.
In 1975 a new primary school for girls was built nearby. This is called Scoil Bhríde and many of the students there go on to do their second level education in Coláiste Muire.
