Thank you to our UCD Chicago Chapter for organising a pre-Festival Happy Hour in Ocean Cut on 09 June. What a happy coincidence to bump into unsuspecting UCD graduates who were dining by our festival bunting! As an added bonus, we were thrilled to meet the UCD J1 summer students who were serving up a storm in the restaurant on the night. Small world 😁 #UCDFESTIVAL ... See MoreSee Less

As part of the 2017 #ucdfestival the School of Archaeology hosted outdoor demonstrations and displays at the Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Material Culture (CEAMC) and an exhibition of student posters from the Public Archaeology module on “New Dubliners” in the Science Hub. Our own Dr Alan Peatfield also led a Tai Chi Taster session in the Wellbeing Zone. The CEAMC demonstrations were given by staff supported by a large number of PhD students and students completing the new MSc in Experimental Archaeology and Material Culture. The feedback from those who attended the Centre was overwhelmingly positive (directions aside) reflecting the research being undertaken and particularly the expertise and enthusiasm of the student participants. Our thanks to Brendan O’Neill for CEAMC organisation and special mention to Črtomir Lorenčič and Maggie Kobik for smithing on a hot day. ... See MoreSee Less

Con Manning has recently retired from his position as Archaeologist with the National Monuments Service, after 38 years. Con, who is an Adjunct Professor at UCD School of Archaeology, and was once a UCD Archaeology undergraduate and MA in Archaeology student, has directed many archaeological excavations in his career and published on several key Irish archaeological sites. He has played a leading role in the vital work of the National Monuments Service in understanding and protecting our archaeological heritage, and is a leading scholar of the early and later medieval church in particular, and an expert on architecture and buildings in general. He has already made a very significant contribution to Irish archaeology, publishing a large number of academic papers, and edited books, but we expect to hear more from him! His colleagues in UCD School of Archaeology would like to warmly wish Con a very long, rewarding and happy retirement (Photos: National Monuments Service Facebook page). ... See MoreSee Less

UCD Medicine

We were delighted to welcome back to Dublin, Mrs Madeline Hynes (née Carberry), wife of the late Dr Harry Hynes along with her brother Maurice who visited the School and to St Vincent’s University Hospital recently.

A native of Co. Carlow, Dr Harry Hynes graduated from UCD Medicine in 1958. He waited for his betrothed to complete her Nurse training at St Vincent's University Hospital, St Stephen's Green before the couple travelled to the United States. Dr Hynes completed residency and fellowship programmes at the Mayo Clinic and earned his PhD in Internal Medicine and Haematology at the University of Minnesota. The couple settled in Wichita, Kansas where Harry founded what became the Cancer Center of Kansas and the Hospice of Wichita, now the Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice.

During a distinguished career in medicine, Dr Hynes established a reputation as someone committed to the highest standards of clinical care for his patients. He maintained close links with his Alma Mater sponsoring a collection of books and journals in the UCD Health Sciences Centre Library. He established four 8 week elective opportunities for our Medicine students at the University of Kansas Medical School in 2000 shortly before his death. The annual elective programme continues to this day and is much sought after by our students. Madeline and Harry always took special care of our students when they arrived in Kansas and Madeline has continued this tradition always extending a warm welcome.

The School would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Madeline for her generous support to this elective.

If you’d like to learn more about the late Dr Harry Hynes, please see a short description of his life and career. Profile of the Late Dr Harry Hynes

If you are one of the almost 75 students who have taken up this elective opportunity, please say hello and let us know where you are in your career.
