Historic Graves at ignite Dublin #8
Earlier this month I had the privilege of being invited to talk at Ignite Dublin. It was the eighth ignite Dublin event and was held in the Science Gallery in Trinity College Dublin. The event is organised by Conor Houghton and is a brilliant evening of stimulating entertainment and education. Eighteen speakers were given 5 minutes to excite the room about a topic close to their heart. The ignite format allows the speakers to use 20 slides which auto advance every 15 seconds. The speakers ranged from Phillip Nolan the president of NUI Maynooth who gave an erudite distillation of what he feels a university should be to Shirley Temple Bar who reflected on the life lessons gained from studying the Disney princesses.
