Hello![edit]


Pontifical Irish College, Rome

Irish Central used this image (with credit!) in an article 'Waterford man who created St. Patrick's Day is now long forgotten' 10th March 2015.

The Friday, 15th June 2012 edition of the Irish Times (Dublin, Ireland) used a large version of this image of the Irish College in Rome accompanying an article on p. 6 Irish college suffers from unjust 'gay' reputation', says prelate. This image was also used on the internet edition of the paper and a cropped version of the same photograph appeared on page 1 on the same day to accompany another article Vatican report critical of culture and ethos of Irish College in Rome.

May 23rd 2014 edition of Ireland's Own also used the picture in an article Ita Marguet explores the historic links between Ireland and the Pontifical Irish College. Ireland's Own also used a cropped version of the image of the gates of the College:
