Hot Lunches

As part of the DES scheme to bring hot lunches to primary schools, we are delighted to work with O'Crualaoi to provide the pupils fresh, locally sourced high quality food. 

If there are any issues ordering via the app, an order can be made by contacting or the shop in Ballincollig, 021- 487 1205, with the child’s name and class.
Any feedback regarding menu choices, portion size etc. will be most welcome as begin this collaboration. This should go directly to 


Ordering times for the lunches on the App. 

The cut off will be 12 midnight on 

Monday for Wednesday, 

Tuesday Midnight for Thursday, 

Wednesday Midnight for Friday, 

Thursday Midnight for Monday, and 

Sunday Midnight for Tuesday. 

Parents can order up to 5 days ahead in one go.


O'Crualaoi will provide bamboo cutlery for the children, but as we are a Green School, we request that where possible, children bring cutlery that can be washed at home and reused . 

To ensure that parents are aware of what food is being eaten, any uneaten lunches will go home with pupils. A zip lock bag (that can be reused) for the food container may be useful in junior classes or  a Tupperware box for senior classes - whatever pupils find easiest to manage. This may help prevent any spills in school bags. 


Please see attached powerpoint and QR code from O'Crualaoi's, our hot lunch provider. 

The powerpoint is a How To, that walks through the ordering process. 

The QR code is a link to the Scoil Bhailenóra Section. 




This is a fully funded DES programme and there is not cost to families through the app. No payment is required.
