This SPARC initiative was launched on 7th February, 2017, at 19.00 in the James Joyce Library Link 2 Space with conversation and music from members of the Celtic rock band KILA. It continued with a series of three events. The events were based on various subject areas; music, politics and medicine, and they provided an opportunity for both students and staff from a broad range of disciplines to hear and/or use the language in an informal environment. This is a student/staff collaborative project between Bord na Gaeilge and UCD Library, sponsored by SPARC.
Our second SPARC event took place on 7th March and was also a great success. Many thanks to Pearse Doherty TD, Sinn Féin, to Harry MacGee, Irish Times political correspondent and to those of you who attended and contributed to the lively discussion.
Our most recent SPARC event was held on Wednesday, 5th April on the subject of ‘Health and Medicine’. Dr David Gibbons, Clinical Professor, UCD School of Medicine & St Vincent’s University Hospital gave a talk entitled: "Cancer; Cause and Prevention". Many thanks to Dr Gibbons and to all those who partook in the interesting discussion. Congratulations to the audience members who won prizes!
