I studied Mechanical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin - Ireland’s premier University. The University was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth, and is a sister Universtity of Oxford and Cambridge in England

Trinity is one of a number of Universities in Dublin, but has the advantage of being located in the city centre, although at the time of its foundation, it lay outside the city walls! However today its at the centre of the action, between the ‘Temple Bar’ and ‘Grafton Street’. The central location of Trinity can be seen from the map below...

Trinity College’s prime attraction is the magnificent Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript from around 800 AD - one of the oldest books in the world. The book of Kells is displayed in the Old Library (see Illustration below), alongside the Book of Armagh (807 AD) and Book of Durrow (675 AD).

Unfortunately the Book of Kells with all of it magnificence ain’t going to get you an Engineering Degree, and there are other normal libraries with more adequate reading for the technically minded amongst us. My favourite library was the 1937 reading room.

The Trinity Ball was always a highlight, but the ball in 1992 was something special as TCD celebrated its 400th birthday - pictured above with friends (l. to r. myself, Allen, Barry, Eoghan, Philip) as things started to get going..

And to prove that all that hard work paid off, here is a picure of my graduation together with the Dean of Engineering, Prof. Perry.
