Christian Brothers College was formally opened on Monday 20 August 1888. Its origins, however, stretch back to a more remote past almost half a century earlier. In 1842, the Vincentenian Fathers founded a seminary in the old mansion house-formerly the official residence of the Mayor of Cork, now part of the Mercy Hospital complex. Some years later, the school was moved to St Patrick's Place, and became known as the Cork Diocesan Seminary.
