You can’t spell success without UCC

Reading the medical press is an education in itself on many levels – there are some interesting columnists out there. One of them is UCC graduate Dr John Ryan who now lives in Boston. In his latest column for one of the medical papers, he wrote about how he had attended an UCC alumni dinner in Boston.

He was lucky enough to win a lifetime’s membership of the Graduate Society on the night. It was the manner of the raffle that caught my attention.
“On our way into the dinner, we were invited to place out business cards into a bowel as part of a raffle,” he says in his piece.
That must have been a very interesting draw. Well, you know they say you can’t spell success without UCC.
