Welcome to the website for St. Martin's Primary School, Garrison. I hope you will take the time to browse this site and become familiar with some of the work and activities which take place in our school. Whether you are a pupil, parent or past pupil or indeed someone visiting us for the first time, I hope you get a feel for the place which has served the parish of Inis Muighe Samh for the past 48 years.
