In the 19th and early 20th Century the Quilty School area was served by a National School in the townland of Kilmurry and one km South West from the present school. It was known as Kilmurry Ibrickane N.S. It was a two room building, the rooms being divided by a timber partition. It accommodated a boys' and a girls' school with two teachers in each classroom. In the early 1930’s it was decided to build a new school. A new site was purchased from the late Michael Casey of Quilty. The site being the site of the old Tromore Lodge which was once the residence of the Parish Priest of Kilmurry Ibrickane. The ruin of the Lodge can still be seen at the rear of the school. The contractors for the school were Fitzpatrick’s of Kilmihil and many locals were employed in the construction. Many locals also gave voluntary labour by bringing cartloads of stones from the shore for the foundations. It was built of mass concrete.
