Calling all university federation pioneers


Sir, – The Irish Federation of University (IFUT) had its beginnings in a meeting of academics from UCD, TCD, UCG, UCC and St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, held in Galway in 1963. As part of our celebrations, we are trying to trace surviving members from the 1960s, especially those who were members from the outset. We are also looking for memorabilia (photographs, documents, etc) from our early years; as well as good anecdotes.

Anyone who can provide any help or documentation is asked to contact the general secretary at 11 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 or – Yours, etc,


For IFUT 50 Committee,


Merrion Square,

Dublin 2.
