The Callaghan Society Members

Callaghan Society members are part of the Carlow University tradition that began in 1822, when the Callaghans, for whom Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy served as caretaker, made her the sole heir of their estate in Dublin. At that moment, they could not possibly have imagined the enormous good, which would result from their bequest over the next two centuries.

Today, legacy commitments from Callaghan Society members through their wills, trusts, or other estate gifts ensure the vitality and development of Carlow University and its Mercy-based mission from one generation to the next.
