Welcome from Cardinal Sean Brady

On behalf of all who are involved in Catholic education in Northern Ireland, I welcome you to our website.

In ainm gach duine a bhfuil baint aige nó aici leis an oideachas caitliceach i dTuaisceart na hÉireann, cuirim fáilte romhat go dtí an suíomh idirlíne seo.

This is a time of huge change in Northern Ireland - political, economic, social and educational. In that rapidly changing environment, the 547 Catholic schools here teach about 45% of all pupils and we take very seriously our role in both maintaining high standards, and contributing to a new society. I thank all those who dedicate so much of their energy and love to providing a high quality education for all young people, whatever their talents and needs.

Our schools have always been active in developing cross community and international links. They welcome people from all national backgrounds and people from various faith traditions or none.  Catholic schools are not an obstacle on the road to reconciliation.

I hope that this website will help visitors to be aware of the exciting enterprise that is Catholic education in the 21st century.

Bail ó Dhia ar an obair – God bless the work.

Cardinal Sean Brady, DCL, DD
Primate of All Ireland.
