The College today remains a vibrant place of learning and formation. It is one of the largest secondary schools for boys (over 750 students) in the Diocese and country. It is, since 1997, home to the first outreach campus of Maynooth University which offers here the first year of an Arts degree before students move to Maynooth Campus to continue their studies. It also houses the Kilkenny Research and Innovation Centre for teams from Telecommunication Software and Systems group in the Waterford Institute of Technology and the Carlow Institute of Technology.
The College has also cemented its place at the heart of the Diocese and it is home for the Diocesan Forum Office, The Vocations Office, The Diocesan Retreat Team for Parish Evenings and the Ossory Adult Faith Development Office. We are delighted to also offer here, in conjunction with St Patrick’s College Maynooth, a Certificate in Theology aimed at those who work in Parish Ministries and those who want simply to deepen their faith.
Much is going on inside the great walls of St Kieran’s and all of it is centred on our original and continuing mission to provide excellence in education and formation to all who come here.
