McCormack House is one of the College’s newer Houses, having its first inaugural year in 2019.

Throughout 2019, McCormack House had one of the highest participation rates in all inter-house events, all whilst having the smallest number of students compared to the other Houses. In a short time, McCormack has become a strong House in the Prendiville community in 2020.
