Assuming most of the interest is from the Castlebar area seeing as how its the catchment and main centre of population but if you want a more definite answer you would need to contact the principal. Might also be worth asking how many pupils attended any of the existing schools during their first year of operation.
Don't see the point having a school based several miles outside the town its serving is a good idea is such a brilliant idea but again I don't see how a location in a laneway between two heavily congested streets is supposed to be more suitable than Marsh house.
Presumably they are just starting with a junior infants class this year (hence the small number of pupils) and additional classes will be added year by year.
