Students Win: NUI Galway Reverses Decision on Art Exhibit

Secret Cartoonist drawings to be displayed in Arts Millennium building at university

Micheline Sheehy Skeffington gave an impassioned speech to about 100 people who attended Monday’s launch of the Secret Cartoonist exhibit that was held in front of a blank wall in the Arts Millennium building at NUI Galway. The exhibit supports five women lecturers at NUI Galway who have been forced to take their fight for their right to be promoted to the High Court. NUI Galway Students Union President Phelim Kelly joined Micheline in celebrating the university’s reversal of its decision to block the hanging of the exhibit in the Arts Millennium building. The exhibit will be installed on Monday evening. It has been seven years since the five women were refused promotion to Senior Lecturer by the university in the 2008-2009 round. Micheline said they have every right to be promoted. Below are some of the photos from the exhibit launch.
