Private Schools in Ireland

There are 56 fee paying Private secondary schools in Ireland – with about 25000 pupils attending them.
The state in Ireland provides a subsidy to all fee-paying schools – and in 2011 this came to €93 Million Euro.
The state subsidy allows the schools to keep fees low in comparison to the UK (for example).
The recent financial problems in Ireland have resulted in a small cut to the subsidy paid to private schools but many people think that paying any subsidy at to these schools is wrong.
Most of the Private fee paying secondary schools in Ireland are around the Dublin area – but there are a few outside Dublin. See here for Boarding Schools .

School Fees charged range from €2500 to over €6000 Euro a year.
