Tomorrow (Friday) from 11am, students, staff parents and the wider community of Louisburgh will celebrate the centenary anniversary of the opening of the town’s secondary school by the Sisters of Mercy, back in 1919.

It’s a double celebration tomorrow, as the Minister for Community and Rural Affairs Michael Ring will officially open the newly completed, state-of-the- art school building and facilities, that is Sancta Maria College, Louisburgh.

 A hundred years ago, the Sisters of Mercy based in Tuam, decided to establish the first Catholic Co-Educational school in Ireland in Louisburgh,  originally called Holy Rosary Secondary School, now known as Sancta Maria College.

Pauline Moran is the present Principal of the School and Conor Clarke is a sixth year student, and the Chairman of the school’s Student Council and they have been telling Midwest News about the significance of tomorrow and about the wonderful new educational facility in the town.
