History of our school

In September, 1897, six Sisters of the St. Louis Order, arrived from their Convent in Monaghan to Kiltimagh, on the invitation of the Parish Priest Fr. Denis O’Hara.

They set up a technical school for the children of the Parish, followed by a school for young ladies. In 1908, the school became, primarily, a boarding school for girls. The school prospered with students winning prizes on a national scale for lace-making and proficiency in the Irish language. Gradually, throughout the century, St. Louis Convent Secondary School, Kiltimagh, became famous throughout the country for academic and cultural endeavours. In 1973, boys enrolled in the school for the first time and the boarding school was phased out. In 1992, the Sisters moved out of the school and into a private residence in the town

St. Louis Community School was founded in 1993 with the amalgamation of St. Louis Secondary School and Coláiste Raisteirí Vocational School, and has a long history in the field of second level, third level  and community education. The Trustees of our School are Le Cheile and Mayo, Sligo & Leitrim ETB
