Well done to UCD Sub Aqua Club who held a screening of 'Ireland's Deep Atlantic' at UCD Cinema and raised much needed funds brilliant charity; RNLI. Ireland Deep Atlantic was shown last night on RTE and if you missed it, definitely go and check it out on the RTE player.Huge thank you to everyone who attended last nights screening of 'Ireland's Deep Atlantic' at UCD Cinema, University College Dublin, and gave their generous donations towards our cause to raise funds for the RNLI.

We were delighted to welcome film maker for Sea Fever Productions and producer of the two part series, Ken O'Sullivan Filmmaker, who gave us some fascinating insights into the making of the show and especially highlighting the importance of protecting our thriving Irish coasts. Ken is an active naturalist, conservationist and advocate for the sea, its life, and the vast ecosystem that depends and thrives on it. His collaboration with Sea Fever Productions, who have been producing award-winning conservation and sport documentaries for over ten years, has resulted in absolutely breath-taking footage of some of Ireland's most rare and unique biodiversity. This is not only the first TV production to feature the deep coral reefs in the North Atlantic, but also en-captures never-seen before displays of some of the worlds most elusive animals, contributing vital information to a range of scientific study.

For those of you who couldn't make it, be sure to catch this amazing production on RTÉ this Sunday at 9:30pm!

Thankfully the UCD boys made it by 6 points and the Cup was coming back to Belfield.

Someone recently asked a great question - in our degree abbreviation MB BCh BAO, why is the letter 'h' always in lower case?

Thanks for your question.

MB BCh BAO stands for Medicinae Baccalaureus, Baccalaureus Chirurgiae, Baccalaureus in Arte Obstetricia.

We've been conferring medicine degrees for over 165 years. By academic tradition, the degree was originally named in Latin as Medicinae Baccalaureus, Baccalaureus Chirurgiae, Baccalaureus in Arte Obstetricia (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of Obstetrics).

The first letter of the word is used throughout the abbreviation except for Chirurgiae (Surgery) where two letters (Ch) are used to avoid confusion with other degrees. Since the 'h' is the second letter of the word Chirurgiae, it isn't capitalised.
