The new students were welcomed to St Patrick’s College, Maynooth on Sunday by president Monsignor Hugh Connolly.

This year’s entry is three more than last year but down from 2013 when 20 seminarians began their studies.

There are now around 60 men studying for the priesthood at the Co Kildare college as well as several hundred day pupils.
