Stoneyford, officially Stonyford is a small town in County Kilkenny, Ireland. It lies on the N9 Waterford road some 14 km south of Kilkenny city. Stoneyford is a part of the parish of Aghaviller in the Diocese of Ossory.Two small streams run through the village, one to the west and the second to the north of the village. Both streams join the north of the village and continue northwards as a tributary to the Kings River, which is less than 500 metres North of the village. It is an important salmonid river which merges with the River Nore to the east of Stoneyford. The King’s River is used regularly for fishing.Stoneyford has a number of protected structures of historic, architectural and artistic importance including the early 19th century Catholic Church, the old two-storey school house and the pub-front of “O’Grady’s" premises has marbilised lettering on its shopfront design, which in particular is considered worthy of preservation. The building is identified as being of Local importance.PopulationThe 2006 Census recorded Stoneyford with a population of 537 persons. The increase in population up to 2006 can be associated with the building of two housing estates.

There are four mainstream class teachers and a number of part-time special needs and resource teachers. The school consists of four classrooms and a staff room.
