Principal's Message

I would like to welcome you to St. Joseph’s N.S., Longford. It is a privilege to serve as principal of St. Joseph’s N.S. Our school has a rich educational history stemming from the Sisters of Mercy and an outstanding reputation in Longford. 

 Although the trusteeship no longer lies with the Sisters of Mercy, their values are clearly woven throughout the ethos of the school- striving to enable all pupils to have the kind of educational opportunities which will empower them to develop to their full potential and to be confident, caring citizens of the world.  The aim of the school is to provide a holistic education  for all pupils in developing the social,  personal, spiritual, academic and aesthetic aspect of the child.

 I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to stay active in your child's education and together in partnership with a highly committed staff, we aim to provide an excellent standard of education for each child in our care.


Mrs Órla Egan
