Cumann Staire donation for history book purchases

The Cumann Staire continued its strong tradition of donating money raised from the hugely successful Arts Bál to worthy causes with a large donation to Roinn Na Staire (Ollscoil na hÉireann, Gaillimh). On 24 July Tonaí Ó Roduibh presented a cheque for 2,000 euro to Professor Dáibhí Ó Cróinín; head of the department of history – Roinn Na Staire. Tonaí, as Rúnaí 2008-09, stood in for the outgoing Reachtaire of the CS Tadhg Ó Broin and was accompanied by Professor Steven Ellis in his role as Uachtarán Onórach (honorary president) of the Cumann Staire. An tOllamh Ó Cróinín expressed the gratitude of the department for the ongoing genorosity of the CS and said that this donation for the purchase of history library books would be of great assistance to all those studying historic studies courses at Galway’s university. Tonaí stated “As our motto Eochair Feasa Foghlaim says, the key to knowledge is learning, and with short-sighted cut-backs in investment in Liberal Arts effecting our universities students often find a disappointing selection of publications in their libraries. We believe our department’s investment of this donation in new history books for the library is something we can be proud of and again underlines the importance of the Cumann Staire’s efficient organisation of the university’s largest ball.”
