Sr. Igora and Sr. Macarena spent a very busy and enjoyable day with us. Loreto Balbriggan gave the visiting sisters a very warm welcome and the two sisters commented on the "wonderful school spirit" that exists in Loreto Balbriggan, the same spirit that exists in every Loreto school worldwide.  They were both truly impressed by the quality of education provided in Loreto Balbriggan. Sr. Ingora and Sr. Macarena complimented the staff on all their wonderful work in keeping Mary Ward's vision alive.
