Coláiste Chríost Rí (CCRí) is a Trusteeship Board Catholic secondary school for boys located on Capwell Road on the southside of Cork, Ireland. The school was founded by the Presentation Brothers and owned by the order until November 21st, 2009.

History

The school was opened in its current location in 1960, having previously been located in Kinsale Road and subsequently in Sawmill Street.

It was designated the Cork School of Culture during Cork's tenure of the title of the European Capital of Culture in 2005.

Many well-known Irish names have attended the school, such as Micheál Martin, the current Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs, footballers Denis Irwin and Damien Delaney, Green Party Senator Dan Boyle, athlete Marcus O'Sullivan and Robert Heffernan and former Cork senior football manager and former allstar Billy Morgan (Gaelic footballer). Television and radio personalities who have attended the school include Eddie Hobbs and Ger Canning, while literary figures include the poet Greg Delanty.

Gaelic Football is the principal sport played in the school. The school has won the Hogan Cup (premier All-Ireland colleges) on four occasions: 1968, 1970, 1983, 1985.
