School History

Mercy College opened in 1946. For over half a century it has adapted itself to meet the needs of girls in Sligo and the surrounding areas.

The present buildings replaced the original structure in 1976.

A modern new gymnasium and lunchroom were completed in 1987 while a Prayer room, extra Science Laboratory and five new classrooms were added in 1993.

Sports facilities were greatly improved before the end of the century when a football pitch, new running track, outdoor basketball and tennis courts were completed.
