Templeogue college class of 2008

Templeogue College C.S.Sp is an Irish secondary school in the suburb of Templeogue in Dublin. It was founded in 1966 and is run by the Holy Ghost Fathers, a Roman Catholic religious institute.


The Latin motto of the school is In Virtute Scientia ('education rooted in virtue') and the principal is Aoife O' Donnell, assisted by Eddie Guilmartin.

There are 650 pupils and 42 teachers. The school rugby team (colours are red and blue) has reached the finals of the Leinster Schools Junior Cup twice, in 1980 and 1985, however, they were not successful. In 2002, a team visited South Africa, the first state school in Ireland to do so.

Sports played at the school include rugby union, basketball, athletics, Gaelic football, association football, and hurling. Sixty boys are involved in the school's concert band.

In 2005, the Irish Times listed Templeogue College as one of the top 25 non-fee paying schools in Ireland, based on the proportion of students going on to university. The school is on the R112 road and is served by Dublin Bus routes 54A, 15A, 15B, 49, 150, 74/A, and 65/B.
