Tinahely National School was initially built in 1961 with just three classrooms, and later extending in 1981 and 2010 to include a General Purpose Room and three additional Classes.
In 2019 Tinahely National School opened two state of the art Autism Classes. Mainstream classes are not always the best setting for Autistic Students and depending on the student's needs, an Autistic Classroom can be more suitable in providing the necessary level of support required. These classrooms have been a wonderful addition to the school as they allow for the students attending these classrooms to integrate with the whole school community with the additional supports they might require.
Tinahely National School boasts an array of outdoor facilities, including a new basketball court, football pitches, running path, climbing walls and a poured rubber play area for younger students.
