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.

A big congratulations to Rang Blathnaid's Shauna McGahon who is making a big splash in the swimming world. Shauna recently won a bronze medal in the 100m fly at the Ulster Schools Championships in Ballymena, representing the school and also came 5th place in the 200IM event. She is the current 50m butterfly All-Ireland Community Games title holder having swum to success in August 2014.
Shauna makes enormous sacrifices for the her sport and when the rest of the world is turning over in bed she is up at five am and on her way to daily training in Monaghan pool. To then come to school and display the commitment to her studies that she continually does is a credit to her and her club Sliabh Beagh, epecially given that she is known to be so modest and unassuming about her achievements. Well done Shauna!
