Thurles Credit Union Sponsor New Library

Thurles Credit Union Sponsor New St Patrick’s College  Library

Pictured recently at the presentation of sponsorship of the new student library at St Patricks College were Donal Scannell (CEO TCU), Paula Hourigan (Registrar St Patricks College), DJ Darcy (President TCU), Rebecca Foote (Student Council, St Patricks College) and Fr Tom Fogarty (President, St Patricks College).

St Patrick’s College is a college of education, primarily specialising at undergraduate level in preparing students to teach in post-primary schools. The college is located here in the picturesque town of Thurles, Co. Tipperary and has a rich history of religious and humanities education, dating back to 1837.

Accredited by the University of Limerick, the college currently offers four full-time BA in Education degrees, which prepare teachers of Religious Studies, Irish, Business and Accountancy for employment in post-primary schools.

As well as offering full time academic courses, St. Patrick’s College serves as a centre for theological, pastoral and spiritual renewal in the region and continues to provide opportunities for community learning.

St. Patrick’s College is also currently developing postgraduate programmes.
