Principal Mairead O'Brien feels that the above quote which is displayed at the entrance of the building perfectly encapsulates the inclusive ethos of An Cosán Community Special School reinforcing the idea that every student is valued and integral to the school and community.

"We thought of you when we made this place, and today could not happen if you weren't a part of it"
