In 1979 the dramatic school Chapel was completed after Fr Michael Hill had launched another appeal to the Catholic community of Southland early in 1977. The Chapel was officially open by Bishop Kavanagh in February 1979. All the parishes in the region, once again, as well as former students and members of the wider public, were canvassed for donations, may giving very generously. The award wining building comprises a central Chapel – sufficient for the boarding community and class groups, rather than the whole school – a sacristy and two areas to be used for the teaching of Religious Education. It was in deed “ a crown on the achievement of many year’s building up the college” as Fr Hill said. Naylor-Love were the builders “who created a little work of art”.
