Principal’s Welcome


I am delighted as Principal of St. Dominic’s College, Cabra to welcome you to our website. I hope that you will enjoy your virtual experience of our school and that your visit will give you a flavour of what we are about in St. Dominic’s.

Teaching and learning is at the heart of what we do here in St. Dominic’s College and we are committed to helping every student to achieve her full potential.


We welcome girls of all religions, nationalities and traditions to our school and strive to work ‘le chéile’ or together for the benefit of every student. We cater for students with special needs and for students who will achieve straight As in their Leaving Certificate and we value them all equally. Our programme of extra-curricular activities has something to interest every student. We offer our girls sports and arts and cultural activities as well as the opportunity to get involved in helping others in our community. You will get a flavour of all we have on offer as you browse through this website. It would be impossible to capture everything but I hope that you will get an impression of St. Dominic’s College.

Above all, in St Dominic’s we offer an environment which is safe and caring. Our Pastoral Care system ensures that every student’s well being comes first and foremost. We are lucky to have a committed, dedicated and professional teaching staff who will always give one hundred per cent to ensure that our students achieve the best possible results. While academic achievement is very important we always hope that our students will be confident, caring members of society. St. Dominic’s College is a happy, vibrant community and I hope that our website captures some of our life and vibrancy. Enjoy your visit!
