On the 4th of July 1964, after days of lifting, carrying and moving, the Department of Experimental Physics moved into the first new building to be occupied on the Belfield campus, in the middle of the countryside of South Dublin. To celebrate and remember the day, we in the UCD School of Physics invited past and present colleagues, alumni and current students to attend 'Physics 50'. On the evening we played a special short video commerating 50 years of UCD Physics at the Belfield Campus.

Hugh Grimley - Class of 1989

Anyone going? Hopefully!!

George Miley - Class of 1963 

To all "survivors" of the Earlsfort Terrace era    "I hope that you are all doing well and are in good health.

Time flies. It doesn't seem all that long since we were sweating for our exams. I still have my old lecture notes and wonder how I ever managed to get through!!!

Congratulations to all involved in ensuring such a successful 50 years at Belfield."

Michael Mahony - Class of 1966 

For those of you who can get to the funcion on 4th July - Greetings from Johannesburg.   I also remember the fun 25 years-on get-together we had in 1991; it would be good if we could do the same for the 50th in 2016.
