John Henry Newman set off for Dublin on February 7, 1854 to start up the Catholic University of Ireland. His objective was to tour Ireland and visit the bishops to make enquiries on the state of the colleges and schools, at the same time advertising the University to potential students and teachers. The Catholic University of Ireland was formally set up on May 18, 1854. The university was established to propagate true learning in Irish Catholics. Newman was eventually installed as Rector by Archbishop Paul Cullen. Newman realised from the beginning that it was important that the professors should be distinguished and well known. This would later transcend in the establishment of a medical school which turned out to be the most successful institution in the University.
