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.

Gas Leak


As you are aware, there was a gas leak this morning. A digger hit a pipeline at the front of the school. The Gas Emergency Services were contacted immediately and the whole school was evacuated to the Greenpark Estate across the road from the school. The emergency services were also contacted and the Gardaí and Fire Brigade attended without delay. The gas was turned off. As a precautionary measure we decided to close and all children were collected from Greenpark within a very short period - thank you for responding quickly to our text. The Gardaí assisted with traffic management. The Gas Emergency Services have now confirmed there is absolutely no gas in the school and it is safe to reopen. School will therefore operate as normal tomorrow. We would like to thank the emergency services, all school staff, the Parents Association, the builders and the local community for their assistance. The evacuation was very calm and smooth. Kind regards, Gerard Ruane and Mairéad Guckian
