UCD School of Archaeology

Congratulations to Dr Séamus Ó Murchú who was awarded his PhD at UCD School of Archaeology in 2016, on the topic '"The Blackstairs Mountains, South East Ireland: Investigating the Archaeological Potential of an Understudied Upland Landscape".

The project was supervised by Dr Robert Sands and funded by Archaeolandscapes Europe (www.arcland.eu/).

Dr Ó Murchú is seen here after his PhD graduation ceremony on 6th December 2016 (we're still catching up on some congratulations here),

Dr Ó Murchú is currently working in the commercial archaeological sector and for the CTYI (Centre for Talented Youth, Ireland). He will be presenting some of the results to the Carlow Historical and Archaeological Society in Borris, Carlow on Wednesday 19th April, if anyone is interested in making the journey for what will no doubt be a fascinating lecture and enjoyable evening.

Our congratulations again to Dr Ó Murchú.

Marian's latest catch-up: living life to the full

On Monday our alumna Marian Keyes (BCL 1984) gave us the latest update for her vlog, reporting from London on being in loco parentis, going to see the Strictly live show and the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night. Despite a child's blistered feet, she still has qualms about using a cycle rickshaw. She was glad she overcame this, as she had a magical experience in Soho, hearing a side of Ed Sheeran's music that was new to her. This moment of happiness was significant for Marian because of all the bad times she went through in London when she was young. She also had a chance to visit a hipster safari park, the Broadway Market in Hackney.

Her editor tells her she has a month's more work to do on her latest book, so she should be back to that routine by now, putting her planned Helen Walsh book to one side.
