Dr Meriel McClatchie will participate in a Northern Ireland Science Week event at the Ulster Museum, Belfast on Friday 23 February 2018. "A taste of prehistory" invites people to feast on a three-course special dinner in the Museum, inspired by ingredients and objects from prehistoric Ireland. As well as dinner, attendees will hear the call of ancient musical horns played at feasts and explore the science behind investigating ancient foods. Dr McClatchie will encourage people to grind cereal grains on a Bronze Age quern stone and explain how archaeobotany provides exciting insights into what people ate in the past.

UCD Medicine

A Cairde,
Ba mhaith linn cuireadh foirmeálta a thabhairt duit chun teacht chuig an imeacht sin, Úsáid na Gaeilge san Oispidéal, a mbeidh ar súil ar an 21ú Feabhra i gColáiste Ollscoile BÁC.

We would like cordially invite you to our event, Úsáid na Gaeilge san Oispidéal, which will be held on Wednesday, 21st of February in UCD.

Beidh go leor pointí suimiúla á phlé againn faoi úsáid na Gaeilge in Oispidéil na hÉireann - idir na buntaistí agus na míbhuntaistí atá ag baint leis, an bhfuil an rialtas ag déanamh go leor, nó barraíocht, agus má chóir do na scoileanna leigheas oideachas a chur ar fáil trí mheáin na Gaeilge.
Beidh plé oscailte againn tar éis sin, agus ba bhreá linn thú a fheiceáil ann chun do smaointí a chur os ár gcomhair.

Beidh tae, brioscaí agus ceapairí againn tar éis.

Tosaíonn sé ag a 7in sa Seomra Gorm in Ionad na Mac Léinn, COBÁC ar an 21ú Feabhra.
___________________________________________________

We will be discussing many interesting points about the use of Gaeilge in Irish Hospitals - between its advantages and disadvantages, if the government is doing enough, or too much, and if the School of Medicine should offer courses to be taught through the medium of Irish.

We will have an open discussion afterwards and would love to have you there to share your opinions on the topic with us.

This will be followed by tea, biscuits and sandwiches.

It all starts at 7pm in the Blue Room in the Student's Union Centre, UCD on the 21st of February.

Is muidne le meas,
Fionnuala Ní Aoidh & Michéal Ó Cathasaigh
Teach na Gaeilge UCD

Congratulations to the UCD Athletes on their performances at the National Indoor Championships at the Sport Ireland Indoor Arena in Abbotstown over the weekend. Particular shout out to our own Mark English who claimed another 800m National Indoor title in a time of 1:53.53.
After injury had curtailed his performances last season, Mark will be pleased to have finished so strongly, closing out the last 400m in 52 seconds to hold off fellow Donegal athlete Karl Griffin. Mark turns his attention to the European outdoor championships in Berlin in August. an event where he captured a bronze medal in 2014.
