St. Louis school celebrates its Golden Jubilee Year

ST Louis Sisters Golden Jubilee

St. Louis Secondary School, Dundalk, which celebrates its Golden Jubilee this year, is set in a part of County Louth rich in history and legend. The school itself incorporates a medieval castle, built in 1475 by Richard Bellew who received a grant from Parliament for doing so. It served to protect this section of The Pale from the raids of the ONeills, and tradition has it that Cromwell spent some time here before The Battle of The Boyne.
