Limerick Institute of Technology

The Limerick Institute of Technology traces its roots to the foundation of the School of Ornamental Arts on Hartstonge Street in Limerick in 1852, with the purpose of delivering technological and artistic education to as many people as possible. The school of Ornamental Arts was succeeded by the Limerick Athenaeum in 1855 and became a Municipal Technical Institute in 1911. In 1980, this became Limerick College of Art Commerce and Technology (COACT), which relocated to the Moylish Campus, still the institution’s main campus since its incorporation as Limerick Institute of Technology in 1997.

Their contribution to civic and cultural life is evident, and graduates are active in every walk of life, from the arts to the sporting, business, sciences, industry, technology, engineering and public service.
