Official Opening of the Extension and Renovation of St Munchins College



Official Opening of the Extension and Renovation of St. Munchins CollegeSt Munchins College, Limerick Diocesan College, is the oldest secondary school in Limerick. The schools motto is “If we live by the truth and in love, we shall grow in all ways” and they have taken many measures in order to live up to this. St. Munchin’s has an anti-bullying programme aiming for a better school atmosphere for their students. The school has also received the Green Flag Award in 2014 thanks to the hard work of their Green Schools Committee. The Green Schools is a long-term programme, which requires renewal every 2 years. St. Munchin’s will receive at least one renewal visit in the next 2 years. This visit will be carried out by the Local Authority Environment Awareness Officer. As well as this, St. Munchin’s hope to apply for their 2nd flag for energy at the end of next year.
The latest step in the College’s life has seen a new €7.8 million development of their campus in Corbally, Limerick by the banks of the Shannon. This project started in February 2012 and was completed over the summer months of 2014
The College organised a celebration to mark the official opening of the newly redeveloped and refurbished school. This took place on Saturday, 3rd January, 2015. It was simple ceremony starting with the celebration of mass by our patron, Bishop Brendan Leahy, in the College Chapel. The school building was then blessed followed by the unveiling of commemorative plaque to mark the opening of the new College by the Minister for Education & Skills, Jan O’Sullivan T.D. The community showed great support for St. Munchin’s  College by attending the celebration along with past students of the school and people who have long associations with the college.
