Welcome to our website. I hope that it helps you learn about our vibrant school community here in St. Louis Carrickmacross.
The atmosphere in this school is friendly and welcoming. One of the great strengths of our school is the quality of the relationships between students and staff. Our pastoral care team is always available to offer support and guidance on an individual basis.
We offer a comprehensive curriculum that includes Junior Cycle, Transition Year, the Leaving Certificate, the Leaving Certificate Applied and the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme. The school also has a varied and progressive extra-curricular life. A variety of sports are played and all major aspects of the arts are included.
It is my particular privilege to serve as Principal in a school that has been a leader in the education of young women since the 1880s. As a member of the teaching staff since the 1980s, I have witnessed the school grow and adapt to the needs of the 21st century. From the Sisters of St. Louis, we inherited a great tradition of high standards in a caring environment and now continue this work under the trusteeship of the Le Chéile Schools Trust.

Congratulation to our newly-selected Ulster All-Stars, Lauren Jones and Holly Lynch. Both girls were awarded All-Stars after a highly competitive series of trials involving over 100 students chosen from the 3000 students who play Ladies gaelic Football at schools' level in Ulster.
The girls received their awards and Ulster team gear at a gala presentation held in Kelly's, Ballygawley on January 9th. The event was a packed affair with representatives from all nine counties and the Ulster LGFA and the GAA. The school was delighted to continue the tradition of having students selected for this illustrious award yet again. This is the second year in a row that they have made it onto the elite schools' team which is a fantastic achievement. The girls will be in action representing their province in the Schools Interprovincials taking place in Mullingar this weekend (January 24th). We wish them all the best.
