In anĀ  extract from a article for the Annacurra Record, the late Conor O’Brien outlined the history of St. Brigid’s National School.

The school building as it is currently situated was built in 1940 and was a 2 classroom school. In 1984 through funding raised by the parishoners of Annacurra, an additional two classrooms were built to facilitate the 4 class groupings and what was now a 4 teacher school. As recently as 2009 a resource room, classroom and storage room were added to the school with the latest additions of a staffroom/kitchen, and a further resource room added in 2011. Extensive buildings are being added at present.
