Presentation of Labhras O Nuallain Memoir to President Michael D Higgins

President Michael D Higgins and Niamh O Dochartaigh

President Michael D Higgins graciously accepted  ‘Memoir of an Irish Economist’, at Aras an Uachtaráin on 5 November ’15. The President reminisced about the ‘old days’ in College and added some witty tales of his own. He had been a former student and later a young colleague of Labhrás in earlier UCG days where they held many views and opinions in common. The Phoenix Park trees blazed magnificently in their autumn colours and the visit to the Arus was an exceptional pleasure for Niamh.
