He said that given that each of the graduands had travelled so far to be there for the conferring, NUI was determined to go ahead with the ceremony. He was pleased that it had been possible to make new arrangements very quickly to enable the ceremony to take place in NUI’s own premises. NUI was pleased to honour three such distinguished individuals, one a graduate of UCD, one of UCC and the third of RCSI.
