Maynooth seminary

Maynooth seminary. When catholic seminaries in France were closed by the Revolution, the Irish hierarchy asked to open one in Ireland. The British government approved, since it might remove young Irish priests from the contamination of foreign revolutionary doctrines, and Camden, the lord-lieutenant, laid the foundation stone of St Patrick's College, Maynooth, in 1796. The government provided an annual grant which the Ministry of All the Talents in 1806 wished to increase. In 1845 Peel, as part of his reorganization of Irish higher education, increased the grant again, leading Gladstone to resign from the cabinet, though his reasons for doing so remained a mystery, particularly after he had explained them. Peel's action was seen by the unbending Tories as yet another betrayal and there was massive petitioning against the bill. But when Gladstone found himself prime minister in 1868 he re-endowed the college as compensation for stopping the grant.
