A Rich History
Kilcock has a rich history stretching back to the sixth century when St. Coca, an early Christian missionary founded the first church in Kilcock on high ground on the southern bank of the Rye Water River. The name Kilcock is derived from the Irish ‘Cill Coca’, the Church of Coca.
By 1299 the Normans had established a manor and settlement at Kilcock and the medieval town extended to the limits of the outer enclosure of the early Christian centre. In the early times the market-place was the principal trading centre of a community and the market and fair of Kilcock became one of the most important commercial centres in what is now the hinterland of North Kildare and South Meath.
Thriving University Town
The town of Maynooth takes its name from Nuadha Neacht, a pre-Christian King of Ireland or perhaps from a later Mogh Nuadhat, a ruler of the second century after Christ. Maynooth is Ireland’s university town, home to the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM) and St. Patrick’s College, Ireland’s Pontifical University.
Following the foundation of The National University of Ireland, Maynooth became a recognised college of the university in 1910. In 1966 St. Patrick’s College opened its doors to lay students and its population grew rapidly over the next three decades. In 1997 the Facilities of Arts, Science, Celtic Studies and Philosophy were united in a newly established constituent university of the National University of Ireland.
