Renee retired in October 2016. Fiona continues to run Tír na nÓg with the help of fellow Director Kellie Mc Andrew (Manager) Lorraine Jennings (Assistant manager) and a wonderful team of 30 staff.Tír na nÓg opened it’s doors in September 1999. It was the first of it’s kind in the area 23 years ago and was planned to provide a comprehensive service from infant to school age care in a creative high quality environment.

At Tír na nÓg we place a high level of importance on the value of play as an integral necessity in the development of the child.

We have developed the business steadily over the years. We care for children from as young as 6 months to 12 years of age. We cater for both full time and part time children and offer a sessional care service also. We participate in the ECCE pre school scheme for morning only, afternoon only and full day Pre-school.

Tír na nÓg prides itself on a vision of excellence in every aspect. We have a staff of 30 employed here including 3 kitchen staff and a household staff member. We have a loyal experienced team and our workforce is stable, highly motivated and happy.This atmosphere is hugely beneficial to the children and whole families have been cared for by our staff, many who have been with us for 8 years or more.

We have an exceptionally good name in the locality and our advertising is primarily by word of mouth.
