Congratulations

Congratulations to Commandant Victor Laing, formerly officer in charge of Military Archives, who was conferred with the Degree, Honoris Causa, of Doctor of Laws by University College Dublin on Monday, 25 April 2016. The ceremony was part of UCD’s celebration of the Decade of Centenaries. Those who were also conferred with honorary degrees on this special occasion were: Ms Catriona Crowe, Professor Roy Foster, Mr Justice Gerard Hogan, Professor Joe Lee and Professor Michael Mann.

On the following day Uachtarán na hÉireann, Dr Michael D. Higgins, opened the newly refurbished Military Archives facility at Cathal Brugha Barracks. This represents one of the seven Government flagship capital projects being developed for the 1916 centenary. The project is a tribute to the dedication of Victor Laing, the late Commandant Peter Young and the staff and volunteers who have worked in Military Archives over the years.
