Welcome to Butlersbridge N.S

It is my pleasure as Principal of Butlersbridge National School to welcome you to our new school website.  We hope you will find the website a useful source of information about our school.  

The information is presented in a user-friendly format and we hope that the website will engage all in the school community. Be sure to take time to explore the website where you will get various snapshots of our school life from whole school events to sporting achievements and recent activities in Butlersbridge National School.  

Butlersbridge National School was established in 1974.  It is a vibrant, welcoming, and supportive environment, located in the heart of Butlersbridge on the outskirts of Cavan town.  We are a Catholic school and operate under the patronage of the Archdiocese of Kilmore.  We are inclusive and welcome all faiths and traditions. Butlersbridge National School is very much at the centre of the community. Together the school works with the parents, the parish, and the community to ensure each child reaches his/her full potential.  

Our school community includes 260 children, 16 teachers and 4 Special Needs Assistants, a secretary, and a caretaker. We are also fortunate to have an active Board of Management and a wonderfully supportive parent body, represented by our Parents Association.
