Welcome to our website. It gives me great pleasure to welcome all our visitors to Lough Allen College. We are a mixed vocational school located in Drumkeeran, Leitrim, Ireland. Our school overlooks the beautiful Lough Allen and is set among the wonderful background which forms the landscape of Drumkeerin. We offer our students a holistic education based on mutual respect and strive to help all our students reach their full potential. We look forward to hearing from all our visitors and any suggestions you may have to improve our site. We send special greetings to all our past students who are spread to the four corners of the world.

Lough Allen College has been granted funding to build a new Art room, Technical Graphics room and multifunctional room. This is great news for our college and will help us continue to provide a modern holistic education which is our mission. Great credit must go to Co Leitrim VEC and in particulr Cllr Mary Bohan and CEO Mr Martin Fallon for their tremendous work in securing funding for the project. Additional funding has also been secured to moderinise gas works and additional areas which are in need of attention

Our new extension has been delayed and work will now not commence until late August 2014. Hopefully then we will get the new rooms we badly need.
Drumkeerin is located approximately 19 miles from Carrick-on-Shannon, 12 miles from Manorhamilton and 20 miles from Sligo. Drumkeerin Vocational School opened its doors in 1935. The present school, re-named Lough Allen College was built in 1987. It is located on the Dowra Road beside the Catholic Church on an elevated 6.5 acre site. The College is a co-educational secondary school under the Patronage and management of County Leitrim VEC. The catchment area extends to around 100 square miles but 1st Year enrolment rarely exceeds 40 students.This allows for the student and teacher to develop a friendship as well as an educational relationship. This familarity has been the backbone for the holistic development of all our students. The school offers a comprehensive educational programme for the Junior and Leaving Certificate, as well as a very successful Outdoor Pursuits FETAC Level 5 Course in conjunction with the Lough Allen Outdoor Pursuits Centre. A Transition Year Programme has also been provided, and the school has a significant Special Needs Education Programme. Examination results in both Junior and Leaving certificate have been excellent and Lough Allen College participates in the Sligo/Leitrim Arts Education Programme as well as Cross-border LET and KEY Programmes.
Lough Allen College has ten classrooms in the main building which was constructed in 1987. Two additional classrooms have been added and a further extension of 3 rooms will commence in Autumn 2013 to be completed in Summer 2014. Specialist rooms include an Art/Music Room, Technology/Drawing Room, Metalwork/Engineering Room, Woodwork Room, Science Laboratory, Home Economics Room and Computer Room. There are five general classrooms.
