Maynooth Union

Maynooth Union

The Maynooth Union was founded on the 27th of June, 1895, at a meeting held during the Centenary Celebration of Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth. The object of the Union is to foster a spirit of mutual sympathy between the College and its past students and friends. For this purpose there will be an annual reunion at Maynooth. Old friends will thus be brought together and memories of College days revived and questions of interest will be discussed”
