A brand new library building opened this week at St Patrick’s College Dublin, in advance of a merger between two leading Irish colleges. St Patrick’s College Drumcondra, a teacher training college with strong ties to the Cathlolic Church dating back to 1875, had previously been described by former pupil John McGahern as the home of “anti-intellectualism”. With its forthcoming merger with Dublin City University, the college has stepped out from behind its iconic gates and walled perimeter to engage with the wider world.
The dramatic interior, dappled with coloured light from stained-glass windows, has been kitted out with Sysco library shelving in RAL 7026 Graphite Grey throughout. In addition, Compactus mobile shelving has been installed in an environmentally controlled archive room to house the College’s special collection of valuable books. All the shelving for the St Patrick’s College Drumcondra library was supplied by Bruynzeel’s Irish dealership, Storage Systems Ltd. For more details contact Storage Systems Ltd on +353 (0)1 871 1400.
