recently moved to the area, Old Navan Road...near Brady's pub and want to know if I am in Castleknock or Blanchardstown parish? I was reading the admission policies for the local schools and places are allocated by parish.
I would say Blanchardstown, I believe the canal is the divider.
Divider of what? the townland or the parish? You'd have to ask the church what the parish boundaries are. They change sometimes.
The real issue is the schools catchment and admission policy. They should have it listed in their admissions policy, probably on the school website.
...I've checked out the school websites and both Castleknock and Blanchardstown admission policy is based on parish boundaries....I wonder how strict they are?
It will depend on demand. If they have places to fill then theres no problem. Big pressure on many schools in the area. Dunno about those two. RIng the school secretary and ask them.
The school HAS to have an enrolment policy they can send you out. Its the school job. Not the local GAA, or Priest whatever. Just ring them.
Thanks, I'll ring the school.
