St. Kevin’s Ballycoog National School is situated in Ballycoog in the parish of Avoca, Co. Wicklow, just ten minutes from Arklow. There has been a school in this part of the parish since the late eighteen hundreds. The old school building is now the community hall.
The present school building opened its doors in 1968. It was officially opened by Mr. M. O’Mordha of the Department of Education. Also present on the day was Rev. John Charles McQuaid, Archbishop of Dublin.
