The 25 best schools in Ireland have been revealed

EACH YEAR,  The Sunday Times reveals the list of the top 25 schools in Ireland.

Judges take into account the amount of pupils from each year who have progressed into third-level education-- particularly the nine universities in both the Republic and the North-- as well as teacher training colleges, the Royal College of Surgeons and Dun Laoghaire's National College of Art and Design.

Many of the top 25 schools on the list every year are private, fee-paying schools-- but for the sixth year in a row the winner is the non-fee paying girls school, Laurel Hill Gaelcholáiste in Limerick City, with 95.2% of graduates in university. Ar fheabhas ar fad!

In fact, the three schools topping the list are all-girls schools: Coláiste Íosagáin in Dublin is second with 91.7% of students in university, followed by Loreto College, also in Dublin, with 90.2%.

Each of the top ten schools except one are either all-boys or all-girls schools, except for 10th-place winner Coláiste na Coiribe, a mixed school in Knocknacarra, Galway.

A whopping 18 out of the 25 top schools are in Dublin, with the remaining 7 winners split between the cities of Cork, Galway and Limerick.
