- Bohola National School or its official name
Scoil Naomh Thóla is dedicated to the memory of an obscure sixth
century saint, a son of a county Clare chieftain who settled in Bohola
and reputetly lived in a hut. Canon Padraig O Fionnain who homself was
responsible for the building of this fine new school in 1987 decided
to name the school Scoil Naomh Tola in his honour. The school has 4
mainstream teachers two learning support teachers, two caretakers, one
secretary and one classroom assistant. No school is complete without
pupils and we have close on 100 bright eyed children at the moment.
