Presentations to Cathy Swift and Muireann Ní Bhrolcháin

The organising committee for ICM 2011 thought that it would be fitting in the 25th anniversary year to acknowledge the enormous contributions of Cathy Swift (Mary Immaculate College, Limerick) and Muireann Ní Bhrolcháin (NUI Maynooth), who between them organised the conference for the bulk of its 25 year history.

The President of NUI Galway, Dr James J. Browne, made a presentation of a Galway Crystal vase to Cathy Swift following his welcome speech to the conference on 25 June 2011. Muireann Ní Bhrolcháin was honoured in absentia, though happily she was there to receive her gift in person later the same day.
