- Carlow College,’ founded by the Right Rev. Dr. Keeffe, in 1793, for the education of Catholic clergy and laity. The ancient languages, modern philosophy, and mathematics, are taught by the professors, and the pupils are prepared for graduating at the London University, and Trinity College, Dublin. ‘The building is spacious, with a centre and wings, and the grounds for recreation are extensive.
- The church of the establishment has a graceful spire, one hundred and ninety-five feet high; the huge gilt cross at the summit was a gift from the ladies of Carlow. The Catholic cathedral is a noble edifice, with an octagonal tower and lantern one hundred and fifty feet high; it is the later English style, with chapels in the transcript, and the interior is enriched by a statue of Doctor Doyle, from the chisel of Hogan., which is greatly admired.
