Irish College at Lisbon
Following repression of the Jesuits in Portugal the college was also suppressed in 1759, the College re-opened under 1782 by a Dr. Brady with the support of the Irish Bishops, who was succeeded by a Dr. Bartholomew Crotty (a former student, and professor of the college and a future Bishop of Cloyne) in 1799, until 1811, when he was replaced by a Rev. Dunne.
In 1834, the college was closed, with a Rev. Joyce as the final rector. The building which served as the college from 1611 until is closure still stands and is used a court house.
