You will have a sense of the great minds that have passed through over the ages - among them Berkeley, Swift, and Beckett in the Humanities; Hamilton, Fitzgerald, and Walton in the Sciences. Their spirit of learning, of breadth, and of reaching beyond the conventional, is still our driving spirit across all of our disciplines.
John Hegarty, Trinity College Provost
