In 1859 the Sisters of Mercy arrived in Enniscorthy to open a Convent to meet the needs of the poor. In 1860 two rooms were procured and classes for children and adults commenced. Recognising the necessity for training the young, in 1882 a workroom was opened where the Sisters taught knitting, shirt making and kindred crafts.
