Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Douglas Community School website

Douglas Community School is an all-boys Community School located in the heart of Douglas in Cork City. Founded in 1926 as Colaiste Muire, the Presentation Order passed the management of the school to the local community in 1974, creating one of the country’s first Community Schools.

We pride ourselves on the care we give to our students, and strive to develop each student as an individual in an atmosphere of co-operation and collegiality.

The school is comprised of a very modern building with state-of-the-art I.T. facilities, science labs, art room, and technology labs which allow the school to offer an extremely broad range of subject choice at both Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate.

We work hard to develop the full potential of every student, so that they leave the school well educated, self-confident, articulate, and with life skills and attitudes that will enable them to live fulfilling lives and contribute to the wellbeing of society.
