The largest and grandest of the College’s rooms, Corrigan Hall boasts a spectacularly high wooden ceiling, ornately dressed windows and twinkling chandeliers.
Corrigan Hall was originally a racquet court. The wooden ceiling is original to the racquet court, which is why it is so high. It is all the more impressive when you consider that it was constructed entirely without the use of nails!
The hall is named after Sir Dominic Corrigan (1802-1880), the first Catholic President of the College. One of the most visually-arresting features in the hall is a beautifully designed stained glass window, which Corrigan donated to the College in 1864.
Corrigan Hall is always in demand as a ‘wow-factor’ venue. It can accommodate 190 people seated theatre style or 156 for a banquet.
