The Rare 'Ole Times!

NEWS / 19 May 2022

See these archive photos of our beautiful school building.

The photographs included in this blog range from 1970 through to it's reopening in 1983.

The school was first located in a house called ‘Stratford’ on Terenure Road East. Some years later the opportunity to move the College to the present complex in Rathgar occurred. In 1981 a new building was erected. It was officially opened in 1983 as can be seen in a broadcast from the RTÉ Television Archives. Today only the elegant mid - Victorian facade remains of the original house.

'Glengyle, Rathgar: The History of a House and its Occupants', by Enda MacMahon (2016) explains in detail about the history of the building. View publication online.
