Quick Reference

Belfast, was founded as Queen's College, Belfast, under Sir Robert Peel's Colleges Act (1845). The Irish Universities Act (1908) created both a National University of Ireland (binding the colleges of Cork, Galway, and Dublin) and a new Queen's University of Belfast out of the former Queen's College. Queen's now reflects, if still inadequately, the increasing political and economic strength of the catholic community in Northern Ireland.
