Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I and modeled after the collegiate universities of Oxford and Cambridge. It is the sole constituent college of the University of Dublin. Originally established outside the city walls, in the buildings of the outlawed Catholic Augustinian Priory of All Hallows, the College is now located on College Green, opposite the Houses of Parliament. While Catholics were admitted from 1793, certain restrictions on membership remained until they were lifted by Act of Parliament in 1873. However, from 1871 to 1970, the Catholic Church in Ireland forbade its adherents from attending Trinity College without permission. Women were first admitted as full members in 1904.
