Board of Management

Members and work of board

Like other primary schools, Gaelscoil Chill Mhantáin is managed by a Board of Management. The eight member board is made up of people representing the Patron, parents, staff and the wider community. Boards of Managements serve for four years and our current board will be in place until November 2019.


Two members, Marie Dunphy and Séadhna Mac Seoin, were appointed by the Patron. The two parents’ representatives, Katie Alvey, the mother of a current pupil and Gerry Walsh, father of a current pupil, were elected by the parent body. Anne Mannion was elected as teachers’ representative. As Principal, Seán Ó Briain is automatically a member of the board. The remaining two members, Pat Ó Dé and Gearóidín Ní Loinsigh, were co-opted by the other six and are representatives from the wider community.


The current Board of Management therefore is…


Marie Dunphy:  Patron’s Nominee (Chairperson)

Seán Ó Briain:  Principal

Anne Mannion:  Teachers’ Representative

Gearóidín Ní Loinsigh:  Community Representative (Treasurer)
Pat Ó Dé:  Community Representative
Gerry Walsh:  Parents’ Representative
Katie Alvey:  Parents’ Representative
Séadhna Mac Seoin: Patron’s Nominee
