Mount Saint Michael, Rosscarbery

Principal's Welcome

principal.jpgI am delighted to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school. As a school, we are very welcoming of our new and updated website where communication will be ongoing and current. You will receive updates, news snippets and reminders as well as other facilities through this service so I hope it will be a positive and productive way forward for all in our school community.

Mount Saint Michael is a co-educational voluntary secondary school in Rosscarbery, West Cork. The school is situated in a beautiful picturesque hilltop, overlooking Rosscarbery Bay and boasts some of the finest views in Ireland. The school was founded in 1894 by the Mercy Order, and the Sisters of Mercy began their long tradition of education in Rosscarbery. Our school strives for academic excellence, as well as providing an exciting range of extra-curricular activities for our students. Mount Saint Michael embraces the charism of, the founder of the Mercy Order, Catherine McAuley “to fit the students for earth without unfitting them for Heaven”. The school is now under the auspices of CEIST – Catholic Education - An Irish Schools Trust but he spirit and ethos of Mercy is very much part of our day to day life.

I hope that the memories and friendships you will make here will last forever. Make good use of the values that your formal and informal education in Mt. St. Michael has taught you and learn from the many experiences you have encountered. As young people you have so much to offer society in the future so always put your best foot forward. Now, as you embark upon a new path, let us wish you many moments of happiness, success and achievements.

May you live your dreams.
