Welcome to Chanel College
Chanel College is situated in the village of Coolock on the North side of Dublin on the Malahide Road. The school opened in 1955 with twelve pupils in its first year. It was the year after the Canonisation of St. Peter Chanel, one of the early Marists that the college was named after him. The main part of the school was built in the late sixties. It has been educating the young men of Coolock and its environs ever since.
Our mission in Chanel is to enable our students to reach their full potential so that they will make a positive difference in today's world. We strive to create a sense of community within the school and an informal but respectful atmosphere between students and staff members. In this pastoral environment, students are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and for their learning.
