University College Cork

UCC was established in 1845 as one of three Queen's Colleges at Cork, Galway and Belfast. The site chosen for the college is particularly appropriate given its connection with the patron saint of Cork, St Finbarr. It is believed his monastery and school stood on the bank of the river Lee, which runs through the lower grounds of the university. The University's motto is 'Where Finbarr Taught, let Munster Learn.'

On November 7th 1849, Queen's College Cork opened its doors to a privileged section of the youth of Munster (115 students in that first session, 1849-'50) after a glittering inaugural ceremony in the Aula Maxima which, the newspapers remarked, already looked mellow though just completed, and which is still the symbolic and ceremonial heart of the college.

University College, Cork is a collegiate, progressive, dynamic research-led university developing a reputation as a world class regional university, built on the history of significant achievements in teaching and learning and research, and strong academic and professional leadership.
