Welcome to the  Ardscoil Rís website

Ardscoil Rís is an all boys secondary school located in the heart of Limerick. The 1st of September 1963 saw the Christian Brothers open the doors of Ardscoil Rís on Limerick’s North Circular Road to welcome 52 students. Since then it has seen many changes over the years and in 2012 it has over 700 students and a teaching staff of 50.

As a second level school we encourage all students to become involved in a variety of activities outside of the curriculum. Life skills are reinforced through participation in such activities as Music, Debating, Sports, Quizzes, Work Experience Programmes, Enterprise , Foreign Exchange, Drama, Concerts, Charitable Fund-raising and Gaisce.

Principal’s Message

Education of the whole person to the highest academic standards is the hallmark of Ardscoil Rís, Limerick. In a Christian Brothers school a strong Christian ethos is an intrinsic component and moral education is fundamental to the development of the individual. Difference is respected and nurtured. We educate our students to take their places in society as well balanced individuals.

It is a great privilege that so many parents entrust their sons to us for their education. Each student is respected for his unique talents and aptitudes. We do everything possible to nourish and develop these talents, believing firmly in the Edmund Rice adage “the seed will grow”.
