Is scoil lán-Ghaelach í Scoil Rois agus is í an chéad Ghaelscoil i gContae Mhuineachaín í. De bharr tréan iarrachtaí fear darbh ainm Peadar Ó Casaide agus coiste de dhaoine a raibh suim acu sa Ghaeilge á threorú aige, d’eirigh leo foirgneamh oiriúnach a bhaint amach ar cíos ón tiarna Shirley agus Gaelscoil a bhunú. Osclaíodh an scoil don chéad uair ar an 10ú lá de Mheán Fómhair 1984. Ar an lá stairiúil sin tháinig ochtar déag isteach doras na scoile. Ag an am bhí an scoil lonnaithe ar an bPríomh Shráid trasna ó mheánscoil Lughaidh Naofa. Bliain i ndiaidh bliana do tháinig borradh is fás ar líon na ndaltaí a d’fhreastail ar an scoil. De bharr easpa spáis agus 130 ar na rollaí tógadh scoil nua i lár Clochbhaile i 2003.
