Parteen National School, set in impressive green surroundings, nestles in the picturesque shadow of the local 19th century parish church, built in 1835, in the peaceful village of Parteen. It is hard to believe that this Clare oasis of tranquility is only a few minutes drive away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre of Limerick.
