UNIVERSITY of Limerick President Professor Kerstin Mey and Chancellor Mary Harney welcomed President of Ireland Michael D Higgins, First Lady of Ireland Sabina Higgins, German Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and First Lady of Germany Elke Büdenbender to the UL campus on Friday, October 29.
The German and Irish delegations visited the Glucksman Library, where they viewed some of the library’s treasured items in Special Collections and Archives. They then participated in a student engagement session as part of the Conference on the Future of Europe, under the theme of ‘A stronger economy, social justice and jobs’, and later viewed a hurling display on the North Campus GAA pitch.
