Mary Immaculate College (Limerick, Ireland)

DeSales University students have the opportunity to study abroad in Ireland through a partnership with Mary Immaculate College. Founded in 1898, by Catholic Sisters of Mercy and the Bishop of Limerick, Edmund T. O’Dwyer, Mary Immaculate College (MIC) is the oldest third level institution in Limerick. The College has expanded significantly since 75 young women were enrolled in 1901 and, today, student numbers stand at more than 3,000.

When the foundation stone for Mary Immaculate College was laid in 1899, the intention was to provide an institution dedicated to the professional training of female teachers for the Catholic national school system. Today, with over 3,000 young men and women enrolled at the College and participating in a multitude of academic programs, MIC continues the embrace the founding vision of Catherine McAuley, who established the Catholic Sisters of Mercy as champions for the most marginalized in society with the conviction that education was essential to the quality of life to which all individuals should be entitled. These enduring values remain enshrined in the College Mission Statement as Mary Immaculate steers a new course in the Twenty First Century.
