Library Inductions

All new B.A. and B.Ed. students should make sure to attend a group tour over the next couple of weeks (if you haven't already).

They are quick and snappy and tell you all you need to know to hit the ground running with your studies and assignments.  

New B.Ed.students are scheduled according to their B.Ed. group - you can see your group's timeslot on the Síol section of our website here.

Tours for B.A. students were offered last week but if you missed yours for any reason please let us know either at the information desk or by email -

Culture Night

The College's first contribution to Culture Night on Friday last was a great success.

In addition to the musical and architectural offerings, visitors on the night were given a rare opportunity to view four Irish language manuscripts held by the College.

Indexed as Lamhscríbhinní I, II, III, IV) they contain mainly religious or devotional material , including versions of Aodh Mac Aingil’s Scáthán Shacramuinte na hAithridhe.  LIII is of particular interest in that is it is written on the back of printed acts of the parliament in Dublin, which date from 1772.

The main event of the evening was a recital of César Franck's 'Violin Sonata', Arvo Pärt's reflective 'Spiegel im Spiegel' and the 'Andantino malincolico' by George Enescu by Darragh Morgan (violin) and Mary Dullea (piano), both members of The Fidelio Trio, the newly appointed ensemble-in-residence at the College's music department.

Congratulations to all involved!
