The Sisters of Charity of St. Paul the Apostle

The Sisters of Charity of St. Paul the Apostle or sometimes called the “Selly Park Sisters” have a long and proud tradition with education in Kilmallock. Canon (later Archdeacon) Begley invited the Sisters to provide primary and secondary education for girls in Kilmallock. One of the Sisters became the Principal of St Peter and St Paul Girls’ Primary School in Wolfe Tone Street. In this school, boys and girls shared the same building with boys being educated on the ground floor and the girls upstairs. A new school was built in 1929, named Scoil Ui Eilí agus Uí Ruairc. A secondary called St. Josephs Secondary School would follow shortly.
