The Patrician College in Ballyfin may not have been a rival in the academic field for Trinity College Dublin but the quality of that portico, and the grandeur of the building could bear some comparison! A very fine looking edifice with lots of attachments and outbuildings, and that conservatory looks very grand indeed. Yet another postcard from the Library's Ephemera Collection to whet the appetite!
