COVID-19

The Department of Education and Skills has updated information for schools, preschools and third level institutions on Covid-19; provided by the Department of Health and HSE Health Protection Surveillance Centre following a meeting of the National Public Health Emergency Team.

Public health doctors are available to liaise with schools and advise on precautions if staff and/or students have any concerns.

Anyone who has been too affected regions in the last 14 days and has a cough, shortness of breath, breathing difficulties or fever should self-isolate and phone their GP immediately.

Anyone who has travelled from the affected regions and has no symptoms should visit http://www.hse.ie/ for advice.

The most important action we can take to protect ourselves from Covid-19 is regular hand-washing and good respiratory hygiene.

As further advice or information is provided, it will be issued to schools and posted on the Department’s website.

Travel advice for all Irish citizens is provided through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Note - The Covid-19 affected regions are listed as mainland China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Iran and the following regions of northern Italy - Lombardy, Veneto Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont.

The PDFs linked to here should be read to include the latest affected regions in northern Italy (Lombardy, Veneto Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont) and elsewhere as noted above. These PDFs will be updated accordingly as soon as possible.

Archival Material

Latest

Much archival material has been digitised through the support and good offices of two past pupils, Mr Vincent McGovern (1952) and Mr Liam Birkett (1959). 

It comprises downloadable versions of each of the College annuals, as well as the school newsletter, An Realt, and a downloadable edition of Fr Maher's 'A History of St Mary's 1890 - 1990'.

It can be accessed here.

In addition, we have received photographic negatives from the family of the late J G Maguire, AFIAP, who was the College photographer for many years. Many of Mr Maguire's photographs are accessible by following the links below. They have been digitised from medium format negatives through the generosity of John Gunn Camera Shop
