School gets first woman principal

ONE OF the country's oldest Church of Ireland schools has appointed its first female principal.

Rosemary Maxwell-Eager has been named as the 13th principal and warden of the 253-year-old Wilson's Hospital School in Multyfarnham, Co Westmeath.

Wilson's Hospital is the Church of Ireland diocesan secondary school for Meath and Kildare. It is a boarding school and caters for pupils of all faiths.

Ms Eager will take up her position at the beginning of the school year 2014/2015, following the retirement of the present warden, Adrian Oughten.

A native of Clara, Co Offaly, Ms Maxwell-Eager was educated at Glengara Park School, Dun Laoghaire, and Trinity College Dublin. She later completed a further degree at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.
