St Patrick's College

college of Dublin City University

St Patrick's College (Irish: Coláiste Phádraig) was a third level institution in Ireland, the leading function of which was as the largest primary teacher training college in the country, with up to 2,000 students at one stage. Founded in Drumcondra, in the northern suburbs of Dublin, in 1875, with a Roman Catholic ethos, it offered a number of undergraduate courses, primarily in primary education and arts, and in time postgraduate courses too, mostly in education and languages. Since 30 September 2016, the campus of the former college is known as DCU Drumcondra. On that day it was dissolved as an institution and incorporated into Dublin City University, along with Mater Dei Institute of Education, All Hallows College, and the Church of Ireland College of Education. The teacher training elements of those combined institutions currently form DCU's fifth faculty, 'The DCU Institute of Education'. All humanities-based courses at the former St Patrick's were then absorbed by DCU's Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
