Over 150 students from four of the five Chemical Engineering courses around the country at University of Limerick (UL), University College Cork (UCC), University College Dublin (UCD) and Cork I.T. took part in the All-Ireland Chemical Engineering Sports Day 2019. The event held at UL Sport saw the UL engineers team emerge as victors.
There was an extra sense of competitiveness this year to stop UCC’s attempt at a 5-in-a-row. UL have met UCC in the final three times, so there was a clear tension present when the two teams were in the final once again. However, this year UL triumphed over UCC on home turf with a brilliant team winning a gripping final in a 2-0 victory.
The event is sponsored by MSD, Abbvie, Rusal Aughinish, SSPC and UL School of Natural Science as co-sponsors.
