A new suite of Sports Scholarships were formally launched at the event, designed to support elite athletes in pursuing and excelling in their sport while also undertaking study at the University of Limerick.
Leading semiconductor solutions provider, Microsemi, who has its European headquarters in Ennis, Co. Clare has generously agreed to commit €50,000 over the next 4 years to continue its scholarship programme in engineering at UL.
In excess of 300 sports personalities, philanthropic and business leaders attended the annual University of Limerick President’s Gala Dinner organised by the UL Foundation in a special marquee on the UL campus.
The University of Limerick today conferred Honorary Doctorates on six exceptional individuals from the worlds of humanitarianism, business, the arts and the public sector.
It is with great sadness that we hear the news of the passing of UL Foundation Board member, Sir Terry Wogan.
A close friend of the University, Sir Terry was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University in 2004 and joined the Board of the UL Foundation in 2006.
The University of Limerick has awarded an Honorary Doctor of Science to UL Foundation Director and former Ireland Rugby Captain Paul O’Connell. Dr. Paul O’Connell is the 100th recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Limerick since 1990.
