Adair National School takes its name from Rev. William Adair, a prominent supporter and benefactor of education in Fermoy.

The town’s oldest school, it operated from a premises on Ashe Quay before relocating to Oliver Plunkett Hill – in 1977, a new Adair NS was built in the Greenhill area of Fermoy.
