There was it seems at least one moment of levity at the recent Commencement Address to Graduands at the snow-bound beautiful, leafy campus 4k to the south of the centre of Dublin city. The conferring took place in the O’Reilly Hall which is adjacent to the beautiful campus’ Square Lake – and this, like most of the rest of the place not needed for the safe passage of administrators. VPs  and other Key People, was frozen solid.

Those young hearts going out into the world were advised in all seriousness NOT to try to walk on the lake.

Which only goes to show Health & Safety sees off Divinity and possibly even Structural & Solid Mechanics every time…
