Hollymount Primary School
Hollymount Primary School
Hollymount primary school is located at the top of a hill accessed via a long lane (Hollymount Lane). Hollymount school is an extremely large, impressive building with a strong catholic heritage, the school's former headmistress (Sister James) was one of several nuns teaching at the school right up until the early 1990s. Adjacent to Hollymount school used to be a convent with splendid gardens and a grotto of Lady Mary, children would form a procession of prayer here on May day each year.
Sadly, however, the convent closed in the late '80s and much of the convent has now been knocked down and replaced with modern houses.
School pupils flourish at Hollymount.
