JUNIOR HOUSE GARDENS ST PATRICK’S COLLEGE IN MAYNOOTH
I actually undertook a Masters in Core Operating Systems and was based in the Logic Building which was close to this interesting garden but at the time I was unaware of its existence until I visited the College in 2020,
Patrick Corish (1921 – 2013) was a priest of the Diocese of Ferns, born in Ballycullane parish in County Wexford. He is best known as a distinguished Irish historian and a President of St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth. For many years, he was Professor of Ecclesiastical History in Saint Patrick’s College Maynooth, in succession to the late Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich.
In his retirement, he took great delight in developing the rock garden which was part of the original walled garden in the College. In 1984 he joined the Alpine Garden Society and raised many plants from seed in the quarter acre garden.
He died in 2013 and is buried in the College cemetery.
Since his death, an annual Monsignor Patrick J Corish Lecture has been held by Maynooth College in his memory.
I have seen the garden referred to as the “junior garden” and the “junior house gardens” and I do know which is correct.
Within the campus two large buildings, Rhetoric and Logic Houses, were built in early 1830s and became the Junior House which has an associated garden featuring wild flowers and plants.
