Founded

Patrician College, Finglas, Reunion was founded in Bro Dennis, Bro Angelus & Bro Cormac

Description

In the year 1966 the Archbishop of Dublin John Charles McQuaid asked the General of The Patrician Brothers to open a boys secondary school in Finglas to cater for the large amount of people from the local estates. Bro. Dennis the then Superior General then set about the task by trying a acquire a suitable site. The first site was a piece of land near the present Mater Christi Girls school (Ironically the same school Patrician will merge with in 2014) but this fell through and a 5 acre site where the school still stands was purchased. The school started on 11th September 1967 Bro Angelus Moore as the first Principal with Bro Cormac Cummins as his deputy. 70 Pupils started the first school year. Terry O Byrne was the first lay teacher to teach in the school. In 1968 the building of the school started with the first 3 classrooms ready for September 1969. Over the next number of years the school built up a good reputation both as an academic and sporting college due to the hard work of all involved with the school. A new single block was added to the school and finished in 1979 due to the increase in pupil population. The Youth Club and a creche moved into the prefabs. Brother Lucian Phelan was the last Patrician brother principal and he handed over to Mr Paul Duffy in 1996. The monastery and surrounding ground was sold to a developer in 1997 . A semi detached house in Finglas was purchased for the Brothers. In May 2014 the school will close its doors for the final time as the school merges with Mater Christi school on Cappagh Road, with pupils & teachers transferring to Mater Christi school
