Monique Dinan Anecdote

My best memory of my stay at UCD where I graduated in History and Geography in 1964 as Monique Rivet, a Mauritian student, is to have had the opportunity to live in Ireland, to understand its culture and its history and to love the Irish people. Subsequently this has led me to choose the theme of my thesis for my Masters’ Degree at Laval University, Quebec on the history of how and where the Irish settled in Quebec City. I arrived in Quebec in August 1967, worked very hard, almost day and night – and left in April 1969 with a summa cum laude.
