President’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to St Kieran’s College, our Diocesan Secondary School. Since we first began in 1782 St Kieran’s College has remained faithful to its original mission and ethos: the education and formation of each student to the highest standards, based on the values of the Gospel. We strive, therefore, to provide the opportunity for students who come to St Kieran’s the possibility to achieve the fullness of their potential academically, personally, sportingly and spiritually.

The school community is led today by Mr Adrian Finan, as Principal, Mr Ken Maher and Mr Liam Smith as Deputy Principals and a team of many committed pastoral, year heads, post holders and so many more. Ours is a community that has all its members working to realise our mission – the relentless pursuit of academic excellence – and the full formation, of each student, according to the values of the Gospels so that each may fulfil their God-given talents.

It is, truly, humbling to witness the variety of gifts and talents of our students. They are as many as the pupils we educate – from music to drama, debating to maths, poetry to science, languages to sporting successes and so much more… It is a privilege for us to journey with these men as they hone their talents through practice and commitment. Educating them is a sacred duty, guiding them is an honour, coaching them is a privilege, encouraging them is a simple task and enjoying the fruits of their gifts – a joy.

As the oldest Catholic Secondary School in Ireland, we are very proud of our past; and of those who left here carrying that tradition with them, we are immensely proud! But it is the future that we think about most: how can we continue to best prepare our students to serve as leaders in the Ireland of tomorrow?
I know you will find in St Kieran’s College a community that is welcoming, supportive and encouraging. Maybe this is the continuation of your family’s tradition with St Kieran’s or maybe it is the beginning of a new one … whichever it may be, you are most welcome.

Fr Dermot Ryan

President
