Vet Sporting Greats Event - July 2019
The School is planning a celebration of veterinary sporting greatness in 2019 and we need your help!  There are a huge number of graduates from across all of the School’s Programmes - vets, vet nurses, masters, PhDs - who have excelled in their chosen sport(s) and we are looking to gather as much information on this as possible.  

There’s a great interest in all things sporting across the UCD Veterinary Community, with our graduates represented in a wide range of sports, and the School of Veterinary Medicine would like to mark their sporting achievements.  On Friday 19 July 2019, we’ll hold a Gala Dinner in the UCD Astra Hall to honour our sports men and women, many of whom we hope will be in attendance.  On the night, we’ll have a panel discussion with some of our most high-profile sporting greats, chaired by RTE’s Evanne Ni Chuilinn, and we’ll induct all of our sporting heroes into the UCD Veterinary Community Sporting Hall of Fame.  We’d like to gather as many names as possible to include in our Hall of Fame and we’d be delighted if you could help us with this.  

Names, sport(s), programme they graduated from and any other noteworthy details can be sent to vetsportinggreats@ucd.ie  All suggestions are welcome!  

Details of next year’s celebratory event will be available in early 2019.
