Fergus D’Arcy – Historian

Terenure College 1860-2010

Review of Terenure College, 1860-2010, a history:

Historian Daire Keogh, reviewing this work in the Irish Times, 21 June 2010 described it as ‘ an intimate portrait of a remarkable school which boasts an enduring spirit of friendship, learning, fun and faith’ and observed that there “is an admirable self-deprecation throughout and a candour unusual in an institutional history”.

While in The Irish Catholic, 22 April 2010 author and historian of Clongowes Wood College, Peter Costello referred to this ‘magnificantly produced book’ as ‘no mere pious history for the old boys, but an important contribution to the understanding not only of Irish education bug of Irish society in general”.
