The Thought of St. Thomas Aquinas | An Intellectual Retreat for Ireland

Glencomeragh House | Co. Tipperary, Ireland

This retreat is being offered for Trinity College and current university students in Ireland.

Step away from the daily rush of life to pray and study the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor, with the Thomistic Institute. The retreat will have seminars and discussions framed by the traditional elements of a retreat (Mass, adoration, the Divine Office, etc.).

Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors, meals and housing will be provided free for accepted applicants.


Begins with check-in at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, June 16th

Concludes with check-out at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 18th


Prof. Adam Eitel (Yale Divinity School) holds appointments in the Divinity School, the Program in Medieval Studies, and the Humanities Program. His research and teaching bring topics in the history of Christian theology to bear on questions of fundamental moral concern. A specialist in medieval scholasticism, his particular research interests span doctrinal and moral theology, especially in the works of Thomas Aquinas and his contemporaries. His first book, Thomas Aquinas and the Invention of the Preacher, examines the need for gifts of the Holy Spirit in light of the eliminable conditions of human folly; as this volume approaches the final stages of revision, he is also preparing a translation and critical introduction to Aquinas’s Contra impugnantes. His contributions to various journals include published and forthcoming essays in the Journal of Religious Ethics, Nova et Vetera, Studies in Christian Ethics, and The Thomist. Longer term aspirations include projects on the virtue of charity, the nature of sin, grace, eschatology, grief, and infant mortality.

Fr. Conor McDonough, O.P. (Dominican House of Studies, Dublin) is a Dominican friar from Galway. He studied science and theology at the University of Cambridge and taught theology at secondary school before joining the Dominicans in 2009. He was ordained priest in 2016 and undertook further studies in theology at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland), focussing on the writings of St Thomas Aquinas and John Calvin. He is currently based in Dublin where he teaches theology to the students at the Dominican House of Studies in Dublin.

Fr. Alan O’Sullivan, O.P. (Trinity College) is currently the chaplain of Trinity College, Dublin. He is a member of the Irish province of the Order of Preachers who studied at Blackfriars, Oxford.

Applications to this retreat are due before Wednesday, May 24th.
