On Friday 14 November 2014, 450 of UCD’s most distinguished alumni, supporters and staff attended a gala evening to launch the UCD Foundation Day Alumni Awards in O’Reilly Hall.
The event celebrated the achievements of 13 of their most distinguished alumni, including Clodagh Barry one of the CRC’s former physiotherapists. Clodagh was recognised for her tireless work with paediatric spina bifida in Ireland, the Lebanon and Pakistan. Clodagh retired from the CRC in 2012 after over 30 years of service but now volunteers with the CRC’s therapeutic horse riding group.
Celebrating the diversity and success of the University’s high achieving alumni she joined names such as Sr Stan, founder of Focus Ireland and Irish Rugby star Jonathon Sexton, who was awarded with Foundation Day Medal as a graduate who achieved international acclaim, as well as deserving winners from the fields of Agriculture and Food Science, Architecture, Arts, Business, Engineering, Social Science, Law, Medicine, Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems, Public Health, Science and Veterinary Medicine. The CRC is very proud to congratulate Clodagh on this marvellous achievement and commend her for the dedication shown to her field.
