50 Years of Physics at Belfield

14 July 2014

UCD School of Physics recently celebrated 50 years at the Belfield campus. Moving in on 4 July 1964, the physicists occupied the first building on the new site for the university.

Dr Tony Scott and Bairbre Fox, UCD School of Physics Manager

Five decades later friends, families and colleagues from across the years gathered in the very recently opened O’Brien Centre for Science.

Coincidentally, 1964 was also the year of formation of the Institute of Physics in Ireland and the Young Scientist Exhibition. Common to all three groups is Dr Tony Scott, pictured here with Bairbre Fox, UCD School of Physics Manager.
