In 1983 a new primary school was built in Our Lady’s Meadow on the left of the Castle Avenue and was suitably named Our Lady’s Meadow PS . Prior to this, the Convent Primary School was based in Castle Durrow. The school catered for boys and girls up to First class and for girls only to Sixth class and was run by the Presentation Sisters. The boys’ school on the Kilkenny Road was built in the 1960s to cater for boys from Second class to Sixth class. Our Lady’s Meadow was designed by John Stewart MRIAI. The original school comprised of six classrooms, GP room , office, staff room and kitchenette. In 1992 the first lay principal of the school was appointed and in 1994 the last Presentation Sister teaching in the school was transferred to Dublin. Later on, the Sisters handed over the trusteeship of Our Lady’s Meadow PS to the Bishop of Ossory.
In 1997 the Boys’ School amalgamated with Our Lady’s Meadow thus forming one co-educational Primary school in Durrow. As there was sufficient space in Our Lady’s Meadow PS to accommodate all the pupils, no building programme was necessary at the time.
Due to increased enrolment over the years an extra classroom has been built and two extra offices and Learning Support rooms have been added.
Current enrolment is 95 boys and 94 girls.
