Welcome to Gleneely National School’s Website. We hope you find it easy to navigate and would appreciate any feedback or suggestions to you may have to make it even better.


The earliest mention of Gleneely N.S. that we have come across is recorded in the Ordnance Survey Memoirs of Ireland – Parishes of County Donegal 2 1835-36, Mid, West & South Donegal Vol.39.

The old Gleneely School was built in 1847 at a cost of £70 on land owned by John Bradley.  It was a one roomed building with a fire at each end. 

Two teachers taught there one at each end with their children facing them.  It was resold back to the Bradley family in 1959 at a cost of £200 and is still owned by Henry Bradley to this day.

In 1958 a new building was constructed down the road on the present site.
