UCC was established in 1845 as one of three Queens Colleges at Cork Galway and Belfast. The site chosen for the college is particularly appropriate given its connection with the patron saint of Cork St Finbarr. It is believed his monastery and school stood on the bank of the river Lee which runs through the lower grounds of the university. The Universitys motto is Where Finbarr Taught let Munster Learn. On November 7th 1849 Queens College Cork opened its doors to a privileged section of the youth of Munster after a glittering inaugural ceremony in the Aula Maxima which the newspapers remarked already looked mellow though just completed and which is still the symbolic and ceremonial heart of the college.
