The Delany Archive cares for the archival collections of the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin, Brigidine Sisters, Patrician Brothers and Carlow College.

We have put a selection of our photographs online for your enjoyment at

A wide range of images is included: Bishops and priests of the diocese; members of the Brigidine and Patrician congregations; students of Knockbeg College, Carlow College and Brigidine and Patrician schools; views of buildings including churches, convents and monasteries; and photographs taken at various events. The Brigidines and Patricians spread their wings beyond Ireland and the photographs include some taken in Australia, India and the USA.
