ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS Kilkenny and finalists Cork dominated the 2016 Camogie All-Stars team as this year’s top performers were recognised at the annual awards dinner. For Katrina Mackey, a PhD student in SSPC at UCC, it is her third All-Ireland medal and third All-star Award. Her twin sister Pamela, who is also studying at UCC completed an All-Star double with her sister for the second time, capturing the right corner-back and left corner-forward spots.
RTE's Late Late Show viewers were not only treated to a fun interview with comedian Dara O'Briain who spoke about science. He also conducted an experiment entitled 'Methane Mamba' with Sarah Hayes, SSPC's Education and Outreach Officer. Then himself and the show's host, Ryan Tubridy, filled a bucket full of liquid nitrogen, then adding water created an eruption of a massive cloud!!
