A Loreto School

When Frances Teresa Ball set up the first Loreto school in Dublin in the nineteenth century, she and her companions, as members of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, were following in the footsteps of Mary Ward, their founder, who began her mission of educating women in 1609.

In Loreto Fermoy we try to make an integral part of our lives the characteristics which Mary Ward wanted for all her schools: Truth, Sincerity, Justice, Freedom and Joy.  We pray that as a school community we may continue to live the Christian message through the example and the philosophy of Mary Ward.
