Some Clare men at Trinity College, Dublin, 1637 to 1846


“Alumni Dublinenses: a register of the students, graduates, professors, and provosts of Trinity College, in the University of Dublin.” (London, 1924) by George Dames Burtchaell and Thomas Ulick Sadleir.

Donator: Michael O'Loghlen, Q.C., Victoria, Australia

The entries below are drawn from the first edition of Alumni Dublinenses. This book, published in 1924, contains a register of the students, graduates etc of Trinity College, from about 1637 to 1846. Michael has not consulted the later edition, published in 1935.

The entries, arranged alphabetically by surname, disclose at least some of the men, connected with county Clare, who were at Trinity College, Dublin. Usually, the connection is by birth, land holding, or education.

This list is, of course, far from exhaustive.

Before using any individual entry, please check it for accuracy against the entry in the book and, if possible, the 1935 edition.

The name of the teacher who prepared the student for Trinity College appears in brackets. As will be seen, the entries include references to many men educated in Ennis at the school conducted before 1782 by Mr Crump, after 1782 by Rev Michael Fitzgerald (died 1831) and his successor, Dr Luke King; and at the classical academy run from about 1792 in Jail Street, Ennis by Mr Stephen O’Halloran (died 1828).

The entries suggest that, occasionally, parents living in counties Galway, Tipperary, Limerick and Kerry sent their sons to Rev Fitzgerald’s school at Ennis.

“None” indicates that Michael found no Clare person on the particular page.

If a page number isn’t listed, Michael hasn’t looked at that page.

Michael has added a postscript at the end of the notes. The postscript discloses other men, educated by Rev Fitzgerald or by Mr O’Halloran.

Finally, Michael has added several references.

Note kindly supplied by Maureen Ahern:
This is from Cotton, Vol 1 Munster, Pg 495-
Robert Hogan M.A.
" of the College of Dublin, a native," instituted September 15. [ff.] In 1641 the Rebels forced him to profess himself a Roman Catholic.
[MS. T.C. D. F. 2. 22.]
He appears to have been instituted as Prebendary of Rath on 15 September1637. He would have been Church of Ireland at that time. If he professed himself RC in 1641, I wonder if the Prebendary was then vacant until Neptune Blood in 1667. There's no mention of it. But during the Commonwealth period 1649-1660, some Church offices were vacant.

Other information, from notes written c1843 by Sir Colman O’Loghlen (privately held) -

Mahony, Peter:
a schoolmate of his father, Michael O’Loghlen at the Ennis school conducted by Rev Michael Fitzgerald. According to the King’s Inns Admissions Papers (Dublin, 1982), p 324 Pierce Mahony was educated at the Ennis College.
Pierce Mahony was a pallbearer at the funeral of Michael O’Loghlen, in Dublin in October 1842, and he seems meant.
If so, according to John Falvey in a personal communication, his father also called Peirce was manager of the Earl of Devon’s estates in county Limerick.
Peirce Mahony of Kilmorna, Co Kerry (1792-1853) RC, established a highly successful firm of solicitors in Dublin in partnership with his brother David. He was Daniel O’Connell’s private solicitor, playing an important part in the campaign for Catholic Emancipation (1829) and in the defence of O’Connell and his colleagues in the State Trials of 1843-44. Pierce Mahony was MP for Kinsale.
According to the King’s Inns Admissions Papers, he was the first son of Pierce Mahony of Woodlawn, county Kerry and Anna Maria Maunsell. See also the Dictionary of Irish Biography (RIA).

Staunton, Michael:
a schoolmate of his father, Michael O’Loghlen at the Ennis school conducted by the Rev Michael Fitzgerald.
Michael Staunton was a pallbearer at the funeral of Michael O’Loghlen, in Dublin in October 1842.
Michael Staunton (c1788-c1870) of Clare is well known as the founder in about 1822 and after, in Dublin, of the Weekly Register and the Morning Register. RC. Lord Mayor of Dublin, 1847. Perhaps emigrated to Australia.
Incidentally, Staunton’s counsel in the Court of King’s Bench, Dublin in November 1821 was his school mate, Michael O’Loghlen.

Other information, from an article by H.C. (Henry Comber), Cornelius OBrien of Birchfield (1782- 1857), published in 1984 in Clare -

O’Brien, Cornelius:
According to a memorial of his apprenticeship to Cornelius O’Callaghan, attorney, Cornelius O’Brien was educated at the school run by Stephen O’Halloran of Ennis.
(Perhaps this Cornelius O’Callaghan might be shown in Alumni Dublinenses, p 629, as born c1786, son of John.)

Many attorneys received their training as apprentices. Such Clare men did not attend Trinity College. The King’s Inns Admissions Papers (Dublin, 1982) contain many references to attorneys connected with county Clare, summarised in Clare Attorneys to 1867 (Donated Material: Military, Legal, Police and Prison Records).

Other information from Brian O’Dalaigh (1993) - Henry Stacpoole:
attended Trinity College though his name is not recorded in the College register.

Other information from P.D. (Rev Canon Philip Dwyer), A Handbook of Lisdoonvarna and its vicinity (Dublin, 1876), p 22. He mentioned several men educated at Ennis, including- Harte and Stephen Sandes, who both became Fellows of Trinity College, Dublin.
Dr Gregg, Bishop of Cork.
Dionysius Lardner.
Dion Boucicault.
Mulready, the great historical painter, whose house is still under the Causeway.
Dermody, the poet.
Robert Crowe MP, who wrote against the Union and then supported it.
Colonel O’Neill, son of a tobacco twister, a man of lofty stature and noble bearing who volunteered and fought his way through the Peninsular Wars, up to the head of his regiment.
Chief Justice Patterson.
Sir M O’Loghlen, Master of the Rolls.
The O’Gorman who wrote on fishing.
Giles Dixon, that wit of high renown, sent for by George IV to crown his royal banquets with fascinating drollery.
