About Carlow College

Carlow College is located at College Street in Carlow, Co. Carlow.

Carlow College, otherwise known as St. Patrick's College is Ireland's oldest third-level Catholic College. It was opened in October 1793 following the relaxation in 1782 of the Penal laws which restricted Catholic education. Dr. James Keeffe, Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin along with his successor, Bishop Daniel Delany, were the driving forces behind the foundation of the college. Its aim was to educate boys for the professions and for the priesthood.
