St Muredach's College

Principal's Welcome

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I welcome you to St. Muredach's College, where we are committed to upholding the noble tradition of academic excellence and moral values. Our school is dedicated to nurturing young minds in the spirit of "viriliter agite" – to act in a manly way, embracing the teachings of Jesus Christ as our guiding light, as outlined in the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew's Gospel 5.7.

St. Muredach's College is not just an educational institution; it is a vibrant and caring community. We are a Catholic voluntary school entrusted to the benevolent guidance of the Catholic Bishop of Killala, and we are deeply committed to provide a nurturing and supportive environment for your child.

Our ethos is rooted in the values of honesty, loyalty, self-esteem, and a profound love for learning. We believe that education extends beyond the classroom, and we are dedicated to fostering a culture that encourages personal growth, respect for one another, and a deep sense of responsibility towards our local and global communities.

We recognise that education is a collaborative effort, and we emphasise the importance of students and staff working together in harmony. Through cooperation we create an atmosphere of learning that is not only academically enriching but also founded on principles of fairness and justice for all.

I am privileged to lead a dedicated team of educators and staff who are passionate about providing the best possible education for your sons. We are committed to helping each student discover their unique potential and guiding them on their journey towards becoming well-rounded, responsible, and compassionate young men.

I encourage you to explore our website, where you will find valuable information about our curriculum, extracurricular activities, and the numerous opportunities that await your child at St. Muredach's College. Our commitment to academic excellence and character development remains unwavering, and we look forward to partnering with you in your child's educational journey.

Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of educating your sons. Together, we will continue to uphold the proud traditions of St. Muredach's College and ensure that our students graduate as confident, capable, and compassionate individuals who are ready to make a positive impact on the world.
