  • St. Munchin’s College is an institute specialising in Christian education in Corbally, Limerick.
  • The school was founded in 1796 as Limerick Diocesan College, and this building was opened in 1963 by the Irish president, Éamon de Valera.
  • For many centuries, Irish theological schools had been suppressed and students for the priesthood had to be educated outside Ireland.
  • This site was one of 23 venues for the 31st edition of EVA in 2007, curated by Klaus Ottmann (b. 1964, Germany).
  • St. Munchin’s College was one of numerous sites of a project by Miriam Lohan (b. 1975, Ireland) titled Ringing Limerick. On 7 May 2007, between 11:15am and 11:45am, the artist organised 13 churches around Limerick city to ring their bells simultaneously.
  • This performance was recorded and available to listen to after the event.
