Sacred Heart Lourdes Society


The Sacred Heart Lourdes Society, formed in October 2016, had its first committee meeting in March 2017. As our first initiative, two of the sisters of the Sacred Heart will be sponsored to take part in the 2017 pilgrimage, as a thank you for their long-standing encouragement of the involvement of Mount Anville girls. 

We are currently working on a fundraising event for October 2017, and on the design of a Sacred Heart Lourdes Society pin. 

Committee members: Susanne O’Reilly (Chair), Lisa Geoghegan (Secretary), Claire Moloney (Secretary), Frances Meenan (Treasurer), Maire Kirwan, Niamh Gaughan, Caoimhe Byrne

If anyone would like to get involved with the society or help with our fundraising event, please email:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Appreciation of Sister Dolores Considine rscj


By Noeleen Tiffney present Principal of St Catherine’s, Armagh


Sister Dolores Considine (R.I.P.), RSCJ and the first Principal of Saint Catherine’s College (1973 – 1982) as we know it, passed away on Sunday the 8th January 2017 in Scotland.

Sister Considine was an educational visionary and advocate for social justice whose legacy reaches far beyond this local area.  The education system is now attempting to catch up with a vision that she implemented over 40 years ago.  A humble soul, she declined to come to the opening of the building that we named after her, preferring to shun all plaudits and playing down her achievements.

Her original vision continues to drive our desire to provide the very best for every child who comes through our doors, regardless of background or ability.   Her death is a significant passing in the life of this school and our community is therefore in mourning.   

May she rest in peace.


 “I see myself as applying a flickering spark in 1973, and I salute the magnificent teams who have run with the fragile flame, tending and extending … to the beacon it is today!”  - Sister Dolores Considine
