Press Release: Limerick Redemptorists’ Library to Mary Immaculate College

The Redemptorist community has gifted the contents of its library at Mount Saint Alphonsus to Mary Immaculate College. 

Speakingg at the handover of the library Fr. Seamus Enright, Rector at Mount Saint Alphonsus, said that the earliest books in the library date from the 17h and 18th centuries and were probably brought to Limerick by the first Redemptorists to arrive here from Belgium and the Netherlands.  The majority of the collection was built up over a century from 1850 to 1950.  Many of the books are of Irish historical interest.  Fr. Enright thanked Mary Immaculate College for providing a home for the collection.   

Dr. Peadar Cremin, President of Mary Immaculate College, spoke of the long and close relationship between the Redemptorist Monastery and the College.  He expressed his hope that the Redemptorists’ library at Mary Immaculate College will provide a rich research resource for future generations of scholars.
