In 1970 the VEC took over control of St. Mary’s private secondary school, which was finally sanctioned by in 1973 by the then 1973 Minister for Education, Richard Burke T.D., following concerted efforts by the Killybegs community to finance the running of the school. After battling to get a permanent building, a new school was finally opened in November 1987 .
The strong community partnership continues to thrive within the school, illustrated by the fact that the Physical Education/community hall was jointly financed by the Department of Education, the Killybegs Development Association and the Parish Council and is used jointly for school and community use. It is used by the school during the day and by the community from 7 p.m. each evening, every weekend and during school holidays.
