Analog Devices (ADI) – an enduring and valued partnership
Analog Devices (ADI) is one of the Foundation’s longest serving, most deeply engaged and generous supporters.
The Analog Devices building recognises ADI’s long-standing investments in UL, but the University is fortunate to have received funding for an array of capital, scholarship and programmes over many years. ADI is also one of our largest donors to UL’s new Immersive Software Engineering (ISE) programme.
UL Alumni support projects across the campus in a variety of ways. For example, we recently received a major gift for UL’s first Poet in Residence. Paddy Meskell, a graduate of UL’s founding class, and his wife Darlene made this generous gift.
The position will be integral to creative writing initiatives at the University, led by award winning Irish author, Joseph O’Connor. Professor O’Connor was appointed as Frank McCourt Chair in Creative Writing at the UL in 2014. With internationally renowned novelists Donal Ryan, Sarah Moore Fitzgerald, Rob Doyle and Kit de Waal, and distinguished colleagues in the School of English, Irish, and Communication, he teaches UL’s acclaimed Creative Writing MA.
