About Us

Our school has a long history in Bray ...

With the new school building came a revamped school crest. Below you can see the old and the new.
St. Cronan's also changed its school uniform from a red/brown colour,
to a bright new blue uniform in the 1990s.

Our Most Famous Past Pupil

The 5th President of Ireland, Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh, is the most famous of our past pupils. Born on February 12th 1911, he lived at Number 85 Main Street, Bray. Shortly after he began school in St. Cronan’s his family moved to Number 3, Oldcourt Terrace on the Vevay Road. They remained there until he was 13 years old, when they left Bray upon the death of his father.

Cearbhall was always interested in the Irish language and he attributed this interest to the influence of his teachers in St. Cronan’s, in particular, Mr. McDonald (also known as Paddy Mac), Mr. Horan and Mr. Daly.
