Fantastic day yesterday at the our Scholar in Focus Symposium - with thanks to the many scholars who shed much light on the multi-facted work of Margaret McNair Stokes, one of the leading female Irish antiquarians of the 19th century. A great day finished off in glorious sunshine in the beautiful garden of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland
Remember the great urban myth that the legendary Brazilian midfielder Sócrates once played for UCD reserves whilst studying Medicine in Ireland? Although this story has been thoroughly debunked, Dr Sócrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira, MD did complete his medical degree at the Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto in São Paulo whilst playing professional football with Botafogo Futebol Clube.
Well we think we can boast an even more impressive combination of sporting and medicine achievement in the form of Dr Dora Gorman MB BCh BAO MSc who recently graduated from the UCD School of Medicine with a Medicine and an intercalated Masters degree.
The42.ie recently published a great interview with Dora which describes how she has juggled three sporting codes (soccer, hockey and Gaelic football) alongside two UCD degrees (Medicine and an intercalated masters).
We should point out that that impressive Ireland U17 side which Dora captained to the UEFA European Championships final in Switzerland in 2010 featured two other UCD Medicine alumnae. Dr Ciara Grant (UCD Medicine 2017) and Ms Siobhán Killeen (UCD Radiography 2016) both featured in the side which some months later reached the quarter-finals of the FIFA U17 Women's World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.
Feathers in My Brain is a book to introduce children to dementia after the diagnosis of a family member.
Qualifications open doors to opportunities, but none more so than a part-time Masters from UCD Smurfit School.
If you are ready to take the first step in transforming your career, join us for our Part-time Masters Open Evening next Wednesday from 5:30pm.

There will be a coffee break from 12:30 to 13:30 in the Global Room for women studying STEM subjects to meet and drink coffee and tea, and share experiences. Why not come along to enjoy a coffee or tea together!
На улице стоит осенняя свежая погода, на небе Молодой Месяц, который вышел из тумана, по небу плывут лёгкие облака... воздух очаровательно вкусный и на душе тихо и спокойно...
Захожу поработать в Фейсбук..
А там воют на луну: время колдовства, стричь или не стричь волосы, начинать или не начинать дела и даже советы и заговоры, с полной выкладкой, как произносить на луну заговоры на деньги, просить бесенят приносить в свой кошелёк, трясти березу и хранить листья, как деньги и даже, как изуродовать лицо вражине, сопернице, да так, чтоб ни один знахарь не снял... ЛЮДИ, ЖЕНЩИНЫ - ВЫ СУМАШЕДШИЕ?!?!?!
Вы никогда не будете умирать?! Вы чему учите-то?
Тут и слов нет. Знахари и ведьмы, ведьмочка и маги, гадалки и другие "профессии" - давайте действительно помогать людям, а не вводить их в ад на самое дно. Глупые и незнающие начнут действительно приглашать чертей и чертиков под завывание на Луну... они может денежку какую и привлекут временно, но душу-то погубят навсегда.
Какие заговоры? Лучше сотворить Молитву, а ещё лучше Световую Молитву.
А Луна что? Да просто живет, как и мы, и светит своим серебристым светом - серебрит...
