St. Kieran's College in Kilkenny. This is now part of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. I had read that Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) studied here, but received this helpful correction from Kilkenny:
Your link above talks of St Kieran's in Kilkenny. You assert that Jonathan Swift studied there. Would that he did but he actually studied in Kilkenny College across the river Nore from St Kieran's.

had a photo of St. Kierans

But, as of December 2009, the links are broken.

entry about St. Kierans is at
This photo of St. Kierans College was taken in January, 2004.
