Opening Year School Mass  - Mercy Day September 24th

September 02 2019 marked a very important day in our schools history. It is seventy years since this school opened its doors to the students and community of North Clare and seventy years from when the story of Mary Immaculate first commenced.

In September 1949, almost to the day, this school, which was then a school for girls was opened here, in what was then called, Tivoli House, and later in 1955, boys were first enrolled, making it possibly the earliest Mercy co educational voluntary secondary school in Ireland.

These courageous women, our Mercy Sisters, forged a path of opportunity for all, here in North Clare and for that we are truly grateful. This anniversary poignantly coincides with the official date of retirement of Mr John O Loughlin from the role of principal. A position he has served and developed in the Mercy tradition for over 26 years. We thank Mr O Loughlin for his years of service and the light of courage he has nurtured here in Mary Immaculate which will continue to illuminate our hearts and minds. We wish him well on his new and exciting life journey and pray for his good health and happiness in all his new adventures.

On Mercy day September 24th, we will give thanks and celebrate our 70th anniversary during our annual school mass. All school community and local community are welcome to attend. Mass will be at 9am. However today we pray and give thanks for the courage, selflessness and generosity of spirit on which this Mercy school is built and together we will ensure its founding mission is lived out in the hearts and minds of all its pupils and school community.
