Principal Welcome

Welcome to our website. We hope that you find it both interesting and informative. The school has a teaching staff of thirty four, as well as seven S.N.As, one full time secretary, caretaker and cleaning staff. There are currently over 400 pupils on the roll, representing thirty five different countries of origin. The school motto is “Ag fás ‘s ag foghlaim” and we invite you to learn about our growing, vibrant school. We would love you to download our app, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with what goes on in our busy school.  If you need to contact us,  email me at

As and from September 2013 the school changed its name from Archbishop Ryan SNS to Divine Mercy Balgaddy SNS. Whatever about the school name changing, our outlook on education certainly has not changed. Parents, pupils and the wider school and parish community know the high standards we aspire to. We endeavor to exhibit the core values we have done so since our school's establishment since 1985. With one eye on the past we look forward to the future.

We wish all pupils and staff an enjoyable and rewarding 2022/2023.

Ms. Regina Halpin
