Our History

Navan Convent was founded in 1853 by Mother Catherine Atkinson and three Sisters who came from Kells. In 1857 the Sisters moved to Leighsbrook House.

Our Foundress

In 1831, Catherine McAuley founded the Sisters of Mercy, a Religious Congregation involved in the care of the poor, the sick and educationally disadvantaged.
