Trinity College is Irelands most famous and oldest University’s, it is located at College Green on Dublin’s Southside.
The college was founded in 1592 when a small group of citizens received a charter from Queen Elizabeth to find a University. The city corporation granted them a large amount of land, which had been abandoned for many years.
Constructions began to take place by workmen and fellow students with then consisted of one small square but during the 15th century the community increased, in the late 17th century; Ireland entered a period of great turmoil, which disrupted college life, all the teachers and students were expelled and the college was converted into a barracks for James II’s soldiers.
The 18th Century was more peaceful so they began rebuilding the college as the Library began being built in 1712 then later the printing house, the dining hall, then Parliament Square and Botany Bay. The majority of Irelands finest sons graduated from Trinity College such as Jonathan Swift, George Berkeley, Edmund Burke, Oliver Goldsmith, Henry Grattan and the famous Wolfe Tone.
