Donacarney contains two schools: One boys school and a girls school. Roughly 600 pupils attend both schools. The schools share the same campus. The name of the school is Réalt ná Mara B.N.S and G.N.S respectively.
There is one Roman Catholic church

New Housing Estate
Despite the schools overcrowded, and planning permission rejected, An Bhord Pleana
has over ruled them all and allowed planning permission for 700 3-4 bedroom homes. This has angered the entire area.
Shannon Homes has gained planing permission for a small retail complex in donacarney. It is not known exactly what this will contain. It will though, contain a pharmacy.
The government has agreed to let Réalt ná Mara build a new school. The school will cost €500,000 to build including land buying. The government though will only pay €100,000. The school has all ready made over €150,000 from a raffle held in March 2008.
