Ardscoil Rís was formally opened in Limerick on the North Circular Road on September 1st, 1963, when it welcomed 52 pupils. Classes were held in an old coach house attached to Shelbourne House until the first purpose-built classrooms were available. This first intake included Pat Cox, then a noted debater, later a distinguished academic, journalist and finally President of the European Parliament.
Their School is a Christian community which welcomes students in the tradition of Nano Nagle, foundress of the Presentation Order. A primary aim of their school is the pursuit of academic excellence. They seek to develop the full potential of each person; intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, physical and creative. To achieve this the school strives to provide an educational environment suited to the needs of each individual, within the demands of a changing world.
