Last May, exactly two hundred years after the arrival of the first student in Clongowes, a host of students, parents, staff, members of the Jesuit Community, past pupils and guests – many in period dress – assembled before the castle to witness and participate in a pageant to commemorate the arrival of the first Jesuits and pupils as well as many other events in the development of Clongowes over the past 200 years.

Video footage of the event is available to view here.
