UL Alumni London Chapter Gathering



Building on the success of our re-launch event last November, we really hope you can join us at our next London Chapter Gathering for UL Alumni & Friends on 

Wednesday, 24 May 2017 @ 6.30pm.


Our special guest for the event will be well-known Economic commentator and Senior Lecturer at UL's Kemmy Business School, Dr Stephen Kinsella, who along with a panel of London-based UL Graduates which includes Dr Lijana Baublyte,  John Creaton, Karen O’Sullivan and Helena Quinn (see biographies below) will discuss:


“Brexit and the Irish in London: What's next?”


This gathering, hosted by the University of Limerick, is open to all friends of UL, including our alumni and former students and is another wonderful opportunity for you to network with London-based alumni as well as UL faculty and staff.

Come and meet us and have a chat, while enjoying a reception (drinks and canapés) in good company. Please also spread the word to others you know in the greater London area…

This event will take place at the same venue as last time: 

41 Portland Place
