Is your school on the list?

The Sunday Times has put together its annual list of the top schools around the country and for the fourth year running, Limerick's Coláiste Laurel Hill, a non fee-paying, all-girls secondary school, has been ranked number one in the Republic of Ireland.


The survey measures the progression of all second-level students over a three-year period to universities and institutes of technology.

The list is 400-strong in total but there are some familiar faces near the top including Castleknock College in Dublin 15 which tops the North Dublin list for the fourth time in a row also.

Clongowes Wood in Co. Kildare is the best school in Leinster excluding Dublin while Scoil Mhuire in Cork is the second best school in Munster and in the whole of the country.

Salerno Jesus and Mary Secondary in Galway takes the prize in Connacht for the second year in a row and in Ulster, Colaiste Oiriall comes out on top after a brief one-year hiatus. They have topped the Ulster poll five times since 2010.

Here's the full list of the top 100 schools in the Republic of Ireland as revealed by The Sunday Times.
