Terenure College - A School in the Carmelite Tradition

Terenure College was founded in 1860 and is the oldest educational establishment in the Carmelite Order. It is a boys Junior (primary) and Senior (secondary) school as well as being one of the largest houses in the Province. In 1972 it ceased being a boarding school and is now solely a day school though it is also a centre for the Open University which holds classes in the evenings and at weekends. The school educates boys for the Department of Education’s Junior and Leaving Certificates and also has a wide range of co-curricular activities and is probably best known as one of the country’s leading rugby-playing schools. The school recently embarked on another building programme which has seen the swimming pool renovated and the Community Residence upgraded. The College Chapel also has a series of stained glass windows created by Frances Biggs, a well-known artist, and which depict Carmelite themes and saints.
