Norm’s Thursday Doors : 20 Oct 2016


Church door in St Patrick’s College, Maynooth

This beautiful door is one of the side doors of the main Church at St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth in Co Kildare, not too far from Dublin.   This church is part of Maynooth University, which has been the Catholic seminary for the ordination of priests from the 18th century.    Nowadays, with the fall of in vocations to the priesthood worldwide, the seminary has expanded and is now also a university.

Besides the church, there are many beautiful buildings around the campus, and it is a beauitiful place for an evening stroll, when lectures are over and most of the students have headed home.

    I have a photo of my grandparents and parents and godparents and me, all standing in front of that door, after my baptism. Funny to see it pop up on your blog!

    Lovely shots of Maynooth, Joan. My nephew has been studying to become a teacher for the past few years there and loves it.
