Renowned poet encourages UCC graduates to reimagine Ireland

UCC alum and poet Theo Dorgan addressed UCC graduands at the Winter Conferrings.

“I was shaped in this college by women and men who encouraged us to read wisely and reflect well…to consider things as they actually are before going on to imagine how things might be, could be, should be….There is a new Ireland to be imagined and worked for, a new kind of Ireland to build and it is you who must build it. Everything I have seen of this rising generation persuades me of your strength of heart and it is heart we need now, the heart steadied and strengthened by the mind and by the power of imagination”.
