Association of Medical & Dental Graduates' Annual Dinner

24 November 2018

The fires of the Boardroom were lit once again on Saturday the 24th November 2018 to welcome more than 165 RCSI Graduates and guests for the Annual Dinner of the Association of Medical & Dental Graduates.

President of the Association, Dr Antonia Lehane (Class of 1982), greeted everyone "most of all as friends", and commented, "We had Graduates from every decade spanning over fifty years, contributing to a great "buzz" and fun atmosphere throughout the evening."

"I was delighted to welcome the "VIPs", RCSI Vice President, Prof. Ronan O'Connell FRCSI, and RCSI Registrar/CEO, Prof. Cathal Kelly FRCSI (Class of 1985), and it was a particular pleasure to welcome the President of the RCSI Students' Union, Abdulwahab Shamsaldin who represents the future of our Association."

"Our Association motto; "FLOREAT SODALITAS RUAT RES", interpreted as "May our Association/Solidarity flourish, overcoming difficulties", is as valid today as it was when the Association was founded in 1932 and reminds us to support Graduates in difficulty."

After the meal, Prof. Ronan O'Connell, Vice-President, RCSI, proposed the toast to the Association and spot prizes were won by every table! A sold out event again this year... please remember to book early next year.
