This year Maynooth College celebrates 225 years since its foundation in 1795. A series of blog posts by our archivist over the coming months will highlight some of the interesting and lesser known events and facts of the College’s history. The first of these posts looks at some of the famous people who have visited the College over the years.

The second in the series looks at two occasions when fire broke out in the College, and how tragedy was avoided
