Luttrellstown Community College Coláiste Pobail Bhaile Lotrail


Luttrellstown Community College (LCC) was formed in 2009 to meet the growing second level educational need in Dublin 15.

The school was incorporated under the patronage of the Dublin & Dún Laoghaire Education & Training Board. The college is inclusive, co-educational and non-denominational. The aim of the school is to empower young people to meet their full potential in society.

Details of the school’s ethos and mission statement can be found here.

The school currently includes the original school (LCC) , Cólaiste Na Tulchann (an Irish language secondary school) and Laochra, a specialised centre for students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Our school makes wide use of Technology Enhanced Learning and this forms an important part of the pedagogy at LCC.

LCC has been at the forefront of new curriculum developments and has participated as a pilot school for Leaving Certificate Physical Education and Computer Science as well as introducing new subjects such as Politics and Society at Leaving Certificate and short courses in Coding, Drama and Chinese at Junior Cycle.

The school has excellent sporting and extracurricular activities and students are encouraged to engage in any or all of these.

From the Beginning

Luttrellstown Community College was founded in 2009 under the patronage of the Dublin and Dún Laoghaoire Educational Training Board. An early advocate of the school was Minister for Finance, Brian Lenihan who continued to support the school through its early year. Fionnuala Ní Chaisil was appointed as Príomhoide (Principal), and a small team of dedicated teachers took in the first cohort of 50 students at temporary accommodation in Mill Road, Dublin 15.

The school continued in Mill Road for four years until the completion of phase 1 of a purpose-built building on Porterstown Road which opened for over 400 students in September 2013. This new campus consisted of over 40 classrooms including 3 science labs, 2 computer rooms, 4 technology rooms, 2 Home Economics rooms and rooms for Music, Drama, Guidance and Pastoral Care.


By 2017, with the school consisting of over 700 students, work had commenced on phase 2 of the school campus. This increased the number of classrooms but also incorporated a fully equipped sports hall, fitness suite and dance studio which were shared with the new Luttrellstown Community Centre which was added to the campus. By September 2018, all work was completed and Luttrellstown was now home to over 800 students.

A very important development in Phase 2, was the construction of Laochra. Attached to the main school, but completely self-contained, this was specially designed as a centre for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and contained all the facilities required to allow students integrate into mainstream education.


2018 saw the launch of Coláiste na Tulchann to deliver Irish-medium post-primary education as a result of the efforts of a group of parents and residents from Dublin 15 and South Meath, who came together to lobby for the provision of a second level Irish language school (Gaelcholáiste) in the area.
