Fáilte Isteach - Welcome
Welcome to St Patricks De La Salle B.N.S. Castlebar. Our website has become an important link with our parents and the wider world over the last year in particular. We hope of the way we are developing the side and that it provides you with the information you seek about our school. We have worked very hard to give you a flavour of the very broad range of activities taking place on a daily and weekly basis.
Our school is a large boys school in Mayo on the west coast of Ireland. We participate in many different sports including gaelic football, hurling, basketball, cross-country, soccer, table-tennis and rugby. We are especially noted for computers, table tennis and chess and we have a very impressive school band and choir.
