What we're doing.



We're working to connect with all our Alumni, to build strong and prosperous relationships, and to develop the entire Malachian Community.

Founded in 1833, St Malachy’s College is a Catholic Grammar School for boys.  We take great pride in the history of the College which was opened on St Malachy’s Day 3rd November 1833. The College began with eight boarders and ten day pupils. Today the population has grown to over 1000 pupils. The pupils, with the coat of arms of the Diocese of Down and Connor on their school badge,remain loyal to the rich tradition of the College.

The Catholic Christian ethos of the College is reflected in the school motto:-‘Gloria ab Intus’. This reminds us all of the importance of ‘Glory from within’ and we, through our work, endeavour to honour Bishop Crolly and the founders of the College.

St Malachy’s, as a Catholic school seeks through its ethos, to recognise and respect the uniqueness of all individuals, to enable them to reach their full potential and’ to help create the world as God intends it to be’ (John Paul II)


The Alumni Network at St Malachy’s College seeks to support you and connect you to your classmates, teacher and the College. We are here to link you to the wider College Community and to assist in any events you may wish to run in conjunction with St Malachy’s College. We want to know how you are growing and the successes you have had since your time here with us.

We would love to hear of your personal news or updates, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch and update us with any information that you would like to share with us.

We run many events throughout the year which are great opportunities to reconnect and stay in touch. Keep an eye on our Event page and Social Media channels, or sign up to our mailing list to stay informed of all that is happening in the Alumni life of the College.
