The Catholic Church in Ireland has had a presence in the Latin Quarter for over 400 years. Since 1770, the centre of that presence has been the Collège des Irlandais and its Chapelle Saint-Patrick on the Rue des Irlandais.

The recently renovated Collège now houses the Centre Culturel Irlandais and the Chapelle Saint-Patrick continues to be a centre of worship and pastoral outreach to the Irish in Paris.
