This is a list of the 10 schools in Munster with the highest numbers of pupils accepted on university places in 2012.  You could call it a list of the top 10 best schools in Munster – but high numbers getting into university may not mean the school is a good one – but it’s a good guide. Without the publication of leaving cert results there isn’t much else information available.   The data is from the Sunday Times Irish Schools Guide for 2013
