When We Were Young- the university campus of my Student Days

 In the 2022 Cois Coiribe Magazine out this week, there is an interview with me about life on the university campus during my student days. 
What an exciting time it was to be young! Ireland and the world were changing so fast and so many of us wanted to change it for the better.
We were the first in our families to go to third level college, to experience traveling across the European continent (by Interrail), to work summers in the USA (J1 visa programme), to get involved in international campaigns, to live in a city where young people were in the majority…
Lots of students of that era contributed so much good at so many levels to society- in the arts, sciences, business, education, politics, community…
Lots of great friends in the photo with Grainne McMorrow and myself leading a student ‘Education is a Right not a Privilege’ protest.
(p.s notice all the bikes!)
Hope you enjoy the read here.
