Literature Queen's College was founded in Cork in 1845. It is now known as University College Cork (UCC). The scene depicted shows the north wing of the Main Quadrangle. The famous architects, Thomas Deane & Benjamin Woodward, designed the Tudor Gothic style Main Quadrangle with the south side of the square being enclosed by a wall instead of buildings. The north wing houses a unique collection of Ogham Stones, thought to be burial stones or boundary markers.
