Caoimhe Currie Lucan

Maynooth University Department of Geography held its Prizes Evening on the 5th of October, with prizes being awarded to the top students for both the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years. One of the prize-winners was Caoimhe Currie from Lucan, who won the prize for the best overall work in Physical Geography across the final year of the Geography undergraduate programme for the 2021-22 academic year. As one of the Geography lecturers in Maynooth University claimed, “Caoimhe is an excellent student and proved this with a highly impressive performance in her Final Year., no mean feat given the pressures that she, and other student, had been under throughout their degree due to the impacts of Covid restrictions, but also because she was a highly active member of the Student Geography Society and gave up a lot of her time to helping other Geography students”. Caoimhe is currently continuing her interest in Physical Geography, remaining within the Department as a student on this year’s MSc in Climate Change programme.
